Former Penn Basketball Star Matt White Stabbed to Death By Wife Allegedly For Looking at Child Pornography [UPDATE]

Matthew White, the starting center for the 1979 Penn team that reached the Final Four, was stabbed to death by his wife, Maria Rey Garcia-Pellon, while in bed. She had caught him looking at pornography on his computer. [UPDATE: AP is terming it "possibly child pornography.]

She returned to the bedroom and slipped the knives under her side of the bed. She took one of the knives out as her husband was asleep.

She stabbed him in the neck, the records allege.

White awoke and the two struggled briefly before he collapsed of his wounds.

“I’m dying, I’m dying,” he said, according to the court filing.

Garcia-Pellon then changed her clothes and left the house. She went to the home of a friend and told her White had allegedly been viewing pornography on a computer and she killed him, the records state.

The friend called 911.

“I caught him looking at pornography, young girls, I love kids,” Garcia-Pellon told investigators. “I had to do it.”

White was 53 years old and living in Nether Providence, Pennsylvania.
