WINNIPEG – A 20-year-old woman is accused of stabbing Adrian Acoby, 25, to death in what police say was a domestic dispute on Wednesday morning.

Galena Flett, 20, is charged with second-degree murder.

Police were called about a man being stabbed at a home in the 1300 block of Elgin Ave. W. at about 3:40 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Acoby was found in critical condition and taken to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

Acoby and Flett got in a fight that escalated until Flett stabbed him, police allege.

She was arrested at a Main Street business at about 5:25 p.m. Wednesday and is being held at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
