Suspect held in fatal Lawrence stabbing

Associated Press - December 25, 2013 6:16 pm

Lawrence police have arrested a suspect in a fatal Christmas morning stabbing that followed a domestic disturbance.

Officers were called to an apartment around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday and found a victim with critical injuries. Police say lifesaving measures were unsuccessful.

The Lawrence Journal-World reportsĀ  a 27-year-old woman was arrested at the scene and booked into the Douglas County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Police Sgt. Trent McKinley said the victim’s identity was being withheld because the stabbing occurred during a domestic disturbance. The suspect is expected to make an initial court appearance Thursday.
