Audio: Deputies release 911 tapes in fatal Lutz stabbing

LUTZ — Deputies have released the 911 tape from a fatal stabbing Thursday night in Lutz.

Erick Reinhart, 42, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of 33-year-old Alex Iliff, his ex-wife's boyfriend. Deputies said Reinhart went to the home of his ex-wife, Amy Reinhart, at 24941 Oakhaven Court about 11:45 p.m, was wielding a large knife.

He struggled with Iliff and stabbed him to death, deputies said. Reinhart's ex-wife and her sister were in another room, and the sister called 911.

"My sister's ex-husband came here and killed somebody, and now he's killing himself," she told dispatchers.

When deputies arrived, they found Erick Reinhart bleeding heavily from self-inflicted stab wounds to his neck and abdomen. He was airlifted to a local hospital. Erick Reinhart had previously been detained under the Baker Act, meaning he was a danger to himself, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office spokesman said.

Amy Reinhart and her sister were unharmed. The couple's two children, ages 5 and 6, were later found alone in Erick Reinhart's apartment in Hillsborough County.
