CUBA, Ala. Lilla Pricet, 28, was charged with murder Saturday in the stabbing death of her live-in boyfriend, Abraham Pickens, 34.
Authorities were called to the house the couple shared with Pickens' mother and their two small children about 1 a.m. Saturday.
Sumter County Sheriff Johnny Hatter said the two apparently wrestled over a kitchen knife during a domestic dispute before Pickens was stabbed. Pricet was arrested at the house.
Hatter said it appeared Pickens had one wound and the body was sent to Birmingham for autopsy.
