A Dublin, Ohio woman is behind bars today and charged with murder, after the stabbing death of a St. Marys man. 

Officers arrested 54-year-old Karen Fontenot and booked her in the Auglaize County jail on a murder charge. St. Marys police found 56-year-old Joe Hunter at 204 Williams St. with a stab wound to the chest around 8 p.m. last night. He later died from his injury at the hospital. According to St. Marys police, the call came in from a neighbor who thought Hunter was suffering from a seizure. On arrival, officials found he was stabbed by some type of sharp object. The two were a couple and the altercation was a result of an argument that is under investigation.

"He was transported to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital where he died of his injuries," Said Chief Jacob Sutton of St. Marys Police Department. "Subsequent investigation, we developed information that the female, who was at the scene, was our suspect and she was arrested at that point."

Fontenot has not yet been scheduled for arraignment.
