A woman was stabbed to death by her knife-wielding boyfriend Wednesday afternoon in a Bronx homeless shelter, police said.
Enilies Calix, 19, got into an argument with her 23-year-old beau about 1 p.m. in the Help Morris Community Shelter on E. 171st St. near Morris Ave. in Claremont.
The boyfriend grabbed a knife and plunged it into her neck and chest several times, cops said.
She died at the scene.
“He stabbed her in the neck. She had two kids, one an infant,” said Danielle Pool, 48, a mother of three who lives in the shelter. “They have to get people out of here. De Blasio should shut it down . . . There are fights and security just watches,” she said.
“He was planning to do it because he thought she was cheating,” said an upstairs neighbor. “He gave their two kids to a friend before he did it.”
The couple lived together in a first-floor apartment in the rear of the shelter, where the woman’s body was found.
The two girls, who are 18 months old and 3 months old, are in the care of her sister, said her uncle, Jose Zapata, 39.
“There is nothing left. We are trying to find strength in God. I don’t know why he did it. I don’t know if they fought,” Zapata said.
“She used to come to my house to visit. Everything between them was peaceful. It was harmony,’ he said.
At one point, the boyfriend called one of Calix’s cousins, as police listened, and promised to surrender himself at a nearby park, sources said. But he never showed up.
