Woman charged with murder after Taber apartment stabbing
Police called to a home on Friday night after Howard Sakebow stabbed
A woman has been charged with second-degree murder following a stabbing in Taber.
Police in the southern Alberta town say an autopsy done in Calgary on Monday showed that Howard Sakebow, 47, died of a stab wound in the chest.
Police were called to an apartment late Friday night after receiving a 911 call.
According to police, three adults were drinking beer at a kitchen table when an argument began.
"That argument led to a pushing match, which was broken up," police said in a statement.
Shortly afterwards, Sakebow was stabbed in the chest with a kitchen knife.
"As no phone was in the house, one of the adults ran to a local tavern and called 911."
A 28-year-old woman was arrested in the apartment hallway and later charged with second-degree murder. Her next court appearance is on Tuesday in Taber.
