A 36-year-old woman is in custody at a Kent County correctional facility following a fatal stabbing Friday, police said.

Police said an argument between the female suspect resulted in the fatal stabbing of 32-year-old James Washington at an apartment at 932 Pastiche Dr. south of 28th St.

"The female, who also lived at the apartment, stabbed Washington and fled the scene before the arrival of officers," police said in a statement.

Police said the unnamed suspect was later found and arrested without incident.
