LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 19-year-old woman has been charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a 14-year-old girl in Kentucky.

Louisville police Lt. Emily McKinley tells local media that emergency crews responded just before 6 p.m. Monday to a gas station in Louisville’s Portland neighborhood. There, responders found a girl who had been stabbed in the stomach.

Deputy Coroner Larry Carroll said the girl, Madison Branch of Louisville, died about five hours later at University of Louisville Hospital.

McKinley says a group of girls got into a fight in the parking lot of the Speedway, leading to the stabbing.

Tiffany James of Louisville was charged, and bond was set at $100,000.
