ATLANTA (AP) _ A woman who was nicked by a knife while arguing with a friend put a small bandage on the wound and went to bed, then apparently bled to death.

Police said Clemenstine Robinson, 47, suffered a small cut to an artery in her chest and bled internally after the Saturday night fight.

Janie Childs, 53, was charged with murder. Atlanta police Sgt. Keith Meadows said Ms. Childs and Ms. Robinson were drinking together and were arguing over a paring knife when Ms. Robinson was nicked.

The wound didn't bleed much externally, and Ms. Robinson merely patched it with a adhesive bandage, Meadows said.
