Police say a Long Island man distraught over the breakup with his girlfriend stabbed her to death, then killed himself.

Suffolk County police responded to the murder-suicide in North Amityville after getting a 911 call Saturday just before 10 p.m. that a man was attacking a woman.

Officers found 32-year-old Virginia Vasquez and her 35-year-old boyfriend Stephen Guillaume (ghee-OHM') dead in the doorway of their home.

Police say Vasquez's 14-year-old daughter tried to help her mother and was cut on the hand. The woman's 4-year-old son was not harmed.
