The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says they've arrested a woman Saturday morning for the murder of her boyfriend.

Authorities responded to a call around 2:37 a.m. stating that an individual had been stabbed at a residence on Cattle Creek Path in the Mountain Creek Mobile Home Community in Elliston, Va.

Deputies responded to the scene where they found Christian Colwell, 24, deceased from what appeared to be a stab wound.

Following a preliminary investigation, Colwell's girlfriend, 21-year-old Taylor Stevers was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, reports say.

She is currently being held without bond at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail.

The preliminary investigation determined that the stabbing was a result of a domestic dispute between the two.

The investigation is ongoing.
