EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A woman has been charged in the stabbing death of her boyfriend in East Hartford.

Police said Thursday they arrested and charged 27-year-old Samantha Wheeler in connection with the death of 43-year-old Myron Sanborn, who was stabbed with scissors at the Madison Inn on Feb. 11.

Police allege Wheeler and Sanborn were arguing before the stabbing. Sanborn later died at Hartford Hospital.

Wheeler appeared in Manchester Superior Court Thursday on an unrelated case and was served the warrant by police there. A judge ordered her held on $1 million bond, police said.

It couldn’t be immediately determined if Wheeler had a lawyer.
