THE BRONX - Friends and family gathered at a wake today to honor Katherine German.

Police say the 20-year-old mother was fatally stabbed by the father of her child, Diones Espinal, in a domestic dispute that turned deadly.

Espinal allegedly rammed the SUV German and a male friend were in, causing the vehicle to flip over and trapping the pair on the Pelham Parkway.

Authorities say Espinal then stabbed German several times while she was trapped in the vehicle.

The young mom had a restraining order against Espinal, who is now behind bars.

Another viewing is scheduled for Sunday at the Eternity Funeral Home on Gun Hill Road.
