BOSTON (AP) - Police say one woman is dead and another faces a murder charge after a dispute between neighbors in the kitchen of a Boston apartment turned deadly.

Elba Morales was held without bail after a not guilty plea to a murder charge was entered on her behalf at her arraignment Tuesday.

Police responded to the Dorchester apartment just after midnight Tuesday where they found 34-year-old Sasha Morris suffering from a stab wound to the abdomen. She later died at the hospital.

Witnesses told officers that the 47-year-old Morales and Morris had been arguing, Morris slapped Morales, who grabbed what appeared to be a steak knife and stabbed Morris.

Police say they arrested the suspect as she tried to drive from the scene.

Morales’ lawyer called the case a “real tragedy.”
