ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A woman has been charged with fatally stabbing her own grandfather in Allentown.

Twenty-one-year-old Chene Mejias of Allentown has been charged in the death of 65-year-old Wilson Mejias, who was found dead in the bedroom of his apartment early Tuesday morning.

Police say the suspect lived there with her grandfather.

Allentown police say the investigation began with a phone call from police in Bronx, N.Y., at around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Officers there said a woman had come into their department to say a man had been killed in Allentown. Allentown police went to the apartment and found the victim covered in bedding, towels, sheets and plastic bags.

Chene Mejias is being detained in New York pending her extradition to Pennsylvania.

There is no word on a possible motive.
