Where the case stands now: William Patrick Fricke, 67, of Perinton is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing. His case is now being reviewed by an Ontario County grand jury.
The man who survived an attack inside his lakeside home in Canandaigua last week has been released from the hospital, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Dennis J. Gruttadaro, 62, was stabbed and seriously injured in his West Lake Road home in Canandaigua on Jan. 2. Julie Baker, 58, of Perinton was fatally stabbed during that same attack.
Baker died at the scene and Gruttadaro, who suffered serious injuries, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment. A hospital spokeswoman on Friday said he had been discharged.
Where the case stands
William Patrick Fricke, 67, of Perinton is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing.
His case is now being reviewed by an Ontario County grand jury and he is expected to appear in Ontario County Court within the next few weeks, said Ontario County District Attorney James Ritts.
Fricke remains in the Ontario County Jail without bail.
'Domestic violence-related issue'
Sheriff Kevin Henderson said the stabbing was a "domestic violence-related issue."
Fricke and Baker dated for more than 10 years, lived together and shared a business. Henderson described Fricke as an ex-boyfriend.
He did not say how Gruttadaro knew Baker or Fricke, who also suffered a stab wound to the leg and suffered an injury to his forehead. Henderson did not say how Fricke suffered the stab wound or who might've stabbed him.
Gruttadaro is a Rochester-based lawyer who focused on medical malpractice and negligence.
Who was Julie Baker
Julianne Baker, known as Julie to family and friends, was a mother to three daughters — Claire, Jill and Paige.
She was known as a consummate party planner, who loved to sing, dance and to tend to her garden. Friends described her as a treasure, thoughtful, vivacious, "the life of the party," and said she was always filled with love and laughter.
She was actively involved in Rochester's rowing community. Along with Fricke, she owned and operated The Crew Stop, which produced "high performance rowing gloves" that the two shared a patent for, initially filed in 2011.
Baker also worked as an electrical component salesperson for GMA Inc. She — like her three daughters — graduated from Our Lady of Mercy High School in Brighton.
Predeceased by her husband, Dick Baker, who died of cancer in 1999, Baker is survived by a large, close-knit family, including her parents Dick and Joanne Clas. She was one of seven siblings — and the only girl and second-youngest in line.
