ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) -- Anderson police say a woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death has turned herself in to officers.

Lt. Tony Tilley says 46-year-old Anita Diana Scott is accused of stabbing 46-year-old Alvin Johnson on Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses said the couple argued at a home in Anderson before Johnson was stabbed.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown says Johnson was rushed to Anmed Health where he died from a single stab wound to the chest about an hour later.

Tilley says Scott is also charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Scott's family says she acted in self-defense. But another witness said Scott started the fight.
