HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A man has been arrested in the stabbing death of a woman in Alabama last week.

News outlets report 18-year-old X’Zavier Scott was arrested in Clarke County on Tuesday night.

Huntsville police have charged Scott with murder in the death of 29-yearold Tiffany Dawn Kelley. Police say Kelley’s body was found Saturday night. Huntsville police were initially called to investigate a traffic accident involving a pedestrian and determined that Kelley had been stabbed to death.
