COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado Springs woman is accused of stabbing to death her fiance following an argument over suspected infidelity.

The Gazette  reports  31-year-old Jacqueline Souza was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder Saturday in the death of 33-year-old Brandon Watkins.

According to court documents, Souza called 911, and police found Watkins "unresponsive and bloody." A steak knife was found near his body.

Souza gave police different accounts of what happened, first telling them that she found Watkins with a knife in his chest and the door was open. She later told authorities that Watkins became violent and he eventually fell on the knife during a struggle.

Souza posted a $50,000 bond and was released Tuesday. A phone number listed for Souza has been disconnected.
