DUQUESNE, Pa. (AP) - Police say a western Pennsylvania woman fatally stabbed her boyfriend during a domestic dispute over child care.

Brooke Marie Coleman is charged with criminal homicide following 35-year-old Laron Howard’s death Thursday night in Duquesne from a single knife wound to the chest.

Police say the 28-year-old Coleman called 911 and waited in the home she shared with Howard until officers arrived.

They say she told them Howard had put his hands in her face and that she punched him several times before grabbing a kitchen knife and stabbing Howard when he cornered her and slapped her face.

Coleman is jailed in Allegheny County. A court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 31.
