SALYERSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky woman has been arrested and charged with the stabbing death of a man over the weekend.

Kentucky State Police trooper Shaun Little says Marie Minix of Salyersville has been detained in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center on a single count of murder.

Little says troopers from the Pikeville post responded to a stabbing complaint in the Salyersville community of Magoffin County on Saturday.

Once there, Little says, troopers found 43-year-old Roy Prater of Salyersville dead from a single stab wound.

The incident remains under investigation.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Minix.
