BYRON, Ga. (AP) - Police say an argument over a cellphone escalated into a stabbing that left a 20-year-old woman dead in the central Georgia town of Byron.

Peach County Coroner Kerry Rooks said Tuesday that an autopsy found that Destiny Clark bled to death after a steak knife punctured a vein in her neck.

Clark’s boyfriend, 24-year-old Ratavius Canion, is jailed in Peach County on a murder charge.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1tJ7uFS) that the stabbing happened Friday afternoon at Clark’s duplex apartment in Byron.

Byron police Chief Wesley Cannon said the couple had argued about Canion planning to take a shared cellphone with him when he went out to get some pizza and the disagreement turned physical.
