77-year-old Franziska Stegbauer stepped in to breakup the fight, but was stabbed by one of the men. Stegbauer died, but police are not sure if she died from a stab wound or heart attack.

Her brother-in-law, 69-year-old Adof Stegbauer, had been stabbed several times and was in serious condition.

Her grandson, 39-year-old Chris Rondeau also had received stab wounds.
