PALM BAY, Fla. - A Central Florida man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death Tuesday claimed it was in self-defense, according to police. Officers and fire rescue crews responded to a Palm Bay home on Rome Avenue shortly after noon after receiving a 911 call from 38-year-old Daniel Molina-Gonzalez who reportedly said he stabbed his girlfriend.  When crews arrived, they found the woman dead on the kitchen floor and a knife near her body. Paramedics at the scene said they heard Molina-Gonzalez said something to the effect, "I was trying to get her to stop from stabbing me," the City of Palm Bay Police Department said in an affidavit.
