NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a New York City woman has been arrested on a murder charge after stabbing her 19-year-old brother in the chest.

The NYPD says the victim was found shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday inside a Washington Heights apartment on Nicholas Avenue. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Police say the young man was stabbed during a dispute with his 21-year-old sister, Estefani Lora. Police arrested her on a second-degree murder charge.

It wasn’t immediately clear if she had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
