Hi-Five singer Russell Neal's wife was killed after being stabbed multiple times and he's now been charged with murder.

Cops say Catherine Martinez died from blunt force trauma and stab wounds.

The victim was a hot, 24-year-old fitness model.  She was also an aspiring boxer who went by the name Brasilia.

The 40-year-old singer went to the police station Wednesday and told cops his wife was dead in their apartment and he needed a lawyer.

The couple has 2 kids.  Law enforcement sources say there were no witnesses to the murder so it appears the children were not in the apartment when their mom was killed.

Neal is currently in custody on $100K bond.

This types of killings should be happening more often. Undoubtedly, he caught wind of her planning on leave and taking the kids. The only a man can keep his kids in his life if the women wants to take them is to kill that bitch.

She was a pretty woman but that doesnt mean her death is more significant than the averag3 looking individual. We should all grieve for everyone the sam3. Except racist, just piss on their graves...
