The man told deputies he argued with Murphy over Facebook postings and because he believed she had hidden his medication. The man found the medication in the bedroom and was retrieving it when Murphy stabbed him in the lower middle part of his back, the sheriff’s office said.

While being questioned, Murphy confirmed details about the argument, the report said. The report does not indicate whether she discussed the stabbing.
