London city police said a man stabbed his live-in girlfriend to death Monday night.

Police said they were called to Plantation Apartments on South Laurel Road around 11 p.m., to the home of Sean Messer, 34, and Pamela Bobbitt, 25.

Officers said there, they found Bobbitt with multiple stab wounds in her front and back.

Inside the apartment were Bobbitt's children, said police, but Messer ran.

Police didn't catch the suspect until later, when they found him trying to return to his car around 2 a.m.

Bobbitt was taken to a local hospital, where officers say she later died.

Neighbors said the couple had only lived in the apartment for around two weeks when the incident happened, and described what they heard in the couple's apartment when Bobbitt was killed.

"You could definitely tell there was a lot of pain...there was a lot of hurt going on. Just horrific screams," said neighbor Zachary Baker. 

He added, "If that ambulance would've showed up about 5-10 minutes sooner, she might've had a chance."

Messer was taken to jail on murder charges. Police said he'd been in Family Court before for domestic violence, and at least one of those times had been for a dispute with Bobbitt.
