(KMOV) – Police say a woman has been arrested in the stabbing death of a 19-year-old man in north St. Louis on Sunday.
Authorities say the 17-year-old turned herself into police around 5 p.m. Tuesday night, two days after Thearon Maxey was stabbed to death inside a home in the 3100 block of Clay.
Police say the suspect, who has not yet been identified, stabbed Maxey in the chest with a butcher’s knife during an argument. Maxey was later found unconscious on the front porch. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Charges against the teen are pending.
