BUCKEYE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Arizona say a Virginia man has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his girlfriend.

Buckeye police say 43-year-old Christopher Lloyd Peters of Virginia Beach was taken into custody Monday night.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.

Police say Peters and 60-year-old Katherine Linda Linker of Virginia Beach and Linker’s daughter recently moved into a home in Buckeye, west of Phoenix.

They say Peters and Linker got into an argument inside the home and he allegedly stabbed her in the neck with a small knife.

Police say Linker was taken to a hospital, but died of her injury.

They say Peters was still armed with a knife when officers arrived and a stun gun was used on him before his arrest.
