LAURINBURG — Scotland County deputies say a 23-year-old woman has been arrested after stabbing her father to death.

Investigators told WPDE-TV (http://bit.ly/1uFF27u ) that Ashley Walters was driving her father home from a family gathering Sunday morning when they started arguing.

Deputies say the argument continued after Walters stopped the car and she stabbed her father several times.

Walters is charged with first-degree murder. She is being held at the Scotland County jail and it wasn't known if she had a lawyer.
