A call for help led to a gruesome discovery. Neighbors told FOX6 News they were home cooking when they saw their neighbor hiding in the backyard. She told them, "My son-in-law stabbed me!"

Officials with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said they arrested a man on the scene. In total, four women were stabbed.

On Wednesday, March 11, officials released the names of the victims -- Dominique Roth, 34, and Deidre Popanda, 26. The survivors, ages 36 and 62, were recovering from their injuries.

Those living in what is considered a secluded and quiet part of town were shaken by the violence.

Authorities remained on the scene Wednesday sorting through evidence. Neighbors told FOX6 News the home is a rental property -- and there were never issues there until Tuesday night.

"I would have never expected something like this to happen, but it can happen anywhere," said a neighbor.

Many Wednesday were thinking of a young child who ran for help.

Sheriff's officials did not release additional information on the suspect or motive Wednesday.
