      Rome man accused of killing his estranged wife has been arrested before

      The Rome man who is accused of stabbing and killing his estranged wife had been arrested before.

      Rome Police released new details about Saturday's deadly stabbing early Monday morning.

      Prior to the stabbing, officers from the force were called to the East Bloomfield Street home - where 45-year-old Carrie Werenski was living - two other times in the last month.

      On July 7, police responded to a verbal domestic dispute involving Carrie Werenski and her estranged husband, 46-year-old Christopher Werenski.

      At that time, Christopher was arrested for violating a Family Court order of protection, and charged with criminal contempt. He admitted his guilt in Rome City Court.

      Just five days earlier, police had been called to the address on a possible order of protection violation call, but ruled it had not been violated.

      On Saturday, July 26, police were called back to the home where they found Carrie with stab wounds. She was taken to Rome Hospital, where she was pronounced dead shortly after.

      For this, Christopher is charged with murder.

      Police say the two were married, but had recently separated. Carrie was living on East Bloomfield Street, while Christopher lived on Old Oneida Road.
