OZONE PARK, Queens — A woman who was found stabbed to death in Queens Friday night is believed to have been stabbed by her husband, police said Saturday.

Officers responded to a report of a person assaulted around 7:25 p.m. and found 27-year-old Donne Dojoy, of Queens, with several stab wounds in a residential building on Albert Road, near Whitelaw Street, in Ozone Park, authorities said.

EMS responded and declared Dojoy dead at the scene, officials said.

While canvassing the area, officers later found the body of a man, believed to be Dojoy’s husband, hanging from a tree near the scene, police said.

Authorities believe the man found dead of an apparent suicide is the same person who fatally stabbed Dojoy.

The investigation remains ongoing.
