A man was found dead and an ex-husband hospitalized after fight at Lutz home

One man was killed Thursday night, and another is hospitalized after a domestic dispute erupted at a home in Lutz.
 
Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said a recently-divorced man, Erick Von Reinhart, 42, went to the home at 24941 Oakhaven Court to confront his ex-wife, Amy Reinhart, and her boyfriend, who has not been identified.
 
The two men got into an argument, and Reinhart stabbed the boyfriend to death with a large knife he had brought with him, according to a sheriff's statement.
 
Reinhart then stabbed himself in the neck and abdomen.
 
Deputies found him bleeding on a bathroom floor.  He was taken by helicopter to a hospital.
 
Reinhart's ex-wife was there at the time, but she was not injured.
 
Investigators later learned that Reinhart had left his and his ex-wife's two children, ages 5 and 6, at home alone in Hillsborough County when he went to her home.
 
Murder charges against Reinhart "are imminent," according to the statement..
