Police remain on the scene of a deadly stabbing.
It happened around 1:00 this afternoon on Washington Street in Georgetown. Police swarmed to the scene after getting a report of a stabbing. When police arrived they found 26 year old Maxwell Oliver Pomeroy dead. They took his girlfriend, 36 year old Mindy Hughes Turner in for questioning.
Pomeroy's family says their son was in an abusive relationship and this time, his girlfriend took it too far. They say he started dating her in September, but during the winter, she started showing an aggressive side and started beating him. Pomeroy's parents say they tried to intervene and Turner has been arrested several times for abusing their son. They say now, they hope others will learn a lesson from their son and get out of abusive relationships with their lives.
Police say Turner is being questioned as a witness right now and doesn't faces any charges.
