NORMANDY, Mo. (AP) _ A woman has been charged in the fatal stabbing of her live-in boyfriend in Normandy following an argument.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 23-year-old Keina Jackson was charged Saturday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. Police said Jackson stabbed 45-year-old Anthony Smith Friday evening.

Normandy Det. Sgt. Steve Whitworth said Jackson and a witness said the couple got into an argument when Jackson’s young son was throwing a cup around and Smith smacked him on the legs. They told authorities Smith told the boy to stop, but he threw the cup at Smith.

Whitworth said a physical fight between Jackson and Smith ensued, with both of them punching one another. Whitworth said Jackson got a knife from the kitchen and stabbed Smith. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was not immediately clear if Jackson has an attorney.
