HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities say a Houston-area woman accused of fatally stabbing her roommate and then asking a friend’s boyfriend to help her dispose of the body has been charged with murder.
Adele Margaret Karczewski remained jailed Sunday on $50,000 bail. Court records did not list an attorney.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the 53-year-old Karczewski and her 62-year-old roommate Charles Graham had been arguing and she later used a kitchen knife to stab him in the neck on Wednesday.
Deputies went to the apartment in northwest Harris County after a friend of Karczewski’s told authorities that the woman had tried to get the friend’s boyfriend to help remove the body.
The friend’s boyfriend told deputies he saw a body wrapped in a blanket at Karczewski’s apartment.
