Sheriff: Mississippi daughter fatally stabs father in the back


YAZOO CITY, Miss. (AP) — Authorities in Mississippi say a woman has been accused of fatally stabbing her father in the back during a domestic dispute.

News outlets report 29-year-old Courtney Layne Williams was arrested and charged Tuesday with murder in the death of her father, 53-year-old James Williams.
