DURHAM, NC (AP) — An autopsy reveals that the boyfriend of Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum died from a single stab wound.

The report, released Friday, says 46-year-old Reginald Daye suffered damage to six major organs from the stabbing in April.

Mangum is charged with murder. A call to her attorney Friday was not immediately returned.

Police say she stabbed Daye during an argument. He died in a Durham hospital about 10 days later.

The autopsy says the knife punctured his left lung and damaged his diaphragm, stomach, colon, left kidney and spleen.

The 32-year-old Mangum falsely accused members of the Duke University lacrosse team of rape in 2006, and the district attorney who championed her case was later disbarred.
