Police have made an arrest in the murder of 35-year-old Jennifer Irigoyen, who was fatally stabbed in Ridgewood on Sunday.

Irigoyen’s boyfriend, Anthony Hobson, 44, turned himself into the 104th Precinct stationhouse earlier this morning, police said.

Irigoyen, who worked as a real estate broker and had a listed address in Forest Hills, was five-months pregnant at the time of the stabbing on Feb. 3.

Hobson allegedly dragged Irigoyen from her apartment inside 60-80 Myrtle Ave. into the vestibule area of the building at around 1 a.m., where he stabbed her multiple times in the neck and stomach.

She was later transported by EMS to Wyckoff Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Hobson is being charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence, abortion and criminal possession of a weapon. He was also charged with second-degree abortion.
