After her husband had fallen asleep, police said, she grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the neck. When he awoke, the two struggled, and the victim collapsed on the bed after saying “I’m dying, I’m dying,” police said. Garcia-Pellon then allegedly changed her clothing and left the home.

White remains Penn’s all-time leader in field goal percentage for players with a minimum of 200 made baskets, shooting 59.1 percent from 1977-1979.

“We are greatly saddened to hear about the death of Matt White, and shocked by the details emerging about his death,” Penn athletic director Steve Bilsky said in a statement. “For Penn fans, Matt is a reminder of some of the greatest days of our historic men’s basketball program, the 1979 run to the NCAA Tournament Final Four, and he was a beloved member of the Penn men’s basketball family right up until his death.”

Bob Weinhauer, White’s coach on the 1979 Penn team, said in a statement that his thoughts and prayers go out to White’s two children. He said White continued to stay connected with Penn, even as he was recovering from a stroke.

“It was an honor to have been his coach at Penn and to see him develop into a great defensive player and an important member of the 1979 Final Four team,” Weinhauer said. “Obviously this is a very difficult time for all who knew Matt, but I prefer to remember his playing the piano in hotels we stayed in on the road or assisting me in coaching the alumni game last year at Penn … Matt will always be remembered as a true supporter of Penn Athletics. I am very sad that he has left us so soon.”
