DULUTH– A woman who was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband in Duluth this past Sunday has ties to Bemidji. Nicole Jazdzewski is a 1995 Bemidji High School graduate and briefly studied at Bemidji State University.

Forty-year-old Ryan Jazdzewski is accused of stabbing 41-year-old Nicole ten to 12 times Sunday night. 

The couple’s child called police to report his parents were fighting. 

Jazdzewski reportedly told investigators that he “lost it” and “just started stabbing” his wife during an argument hours after she told him she wanted a divorce. 

The criminal complaint says he used a knife that his wife had grabbed for self-defense. 

Jazdzewski was booked in the St. Louis County jail after being treated at a hospital.

Nicole’s funeral will be held Monday at the St. Philip’s Catholic Church in Bemidji.
