BARROW (AP) -- A Barrow woman is accused of fatally stabbing her live-in boyfriend last week.
Eileen Sovalik, 43, was arrested Friday night, North Slope Borough police said Monday. Sovalik is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of Charles ''Butch'' Morrison, 48.
According to the criminal complaint, Sovalik told authorities that Morrison had made her angry while she was intoxicated. She reportedly threw a TV set against the wall and then got a 12-inch knife and stabbed Morrison once in the chest.
According to the complaint, Morrison was found unconscious -- a puncture wound in his chest -- inside his home late the night of Nov. 12. He was taken to a Barrow hospital, where he was pronounced dead early the next morning.
