BATON ROUGE - Police said a man died after he was stabbed during a fight with his girlfriend and her children in Baton Rouge.

Investigators said Aaron Cummings, 32, was stabbed several times by a kitchen knife during the fight with Jauvanda Carter, 34, and her two children Sunday night.

Police said Cummings got into an argument with Carter, then hit her and strangled her until she lost consciousness. They said Carter's 8-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son tried to stop him, but Cummings pushed the girl away and fought with the son, strangling him and trying to push him off a balcony.

Investigators said Carter was able to get a kitchen knife and stab Cummings several times in the upper body. EMS took him to Baton Rouge General Mid-City where he later died.

Detectives questioned Carter and released her without charges, but said their investigation is continuing.
