MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee prosecutor says a Kentucky woman has been indicted on a charge of second-degree murder in the death of a friend during an argument.

Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich says 20-year-old Harley Berry of Elizabethtown is being held in the Shelby County Women’s Jail East.

Investigators say Berry was with friends on May 30 at a rented house in Memphis when she got into an argument with 22-year-old Elijah McQueary.

Weirich’s office says witnesses reported that Berry stabbed McQueary several times with a kitchen knife.

Berry was arrested in Elizabethtown and returned to Memphis.
