    "Did you know that by hurting Jasmine, you hurt her daughter? You hurt her family, and you hurt her friends," said Preciado's cousin, Christina. 

    Preciado was on a date with her boyfriend Monday night, her family said. 

    The couple got into an argument with three other people before Preciado was stabbed, police said Tuesday morning. Authorities noted they do not know what they were fighting over. 

    Surveillance video released Tuesday shows the moments leading up to the deadly stabbing. 

    Footage appears to show Preciado in dark clothing showing her phone to several people near a vehicle.

    A short struggle is seen along with a person dressed in white, holding something shiny.
