Assaria Saline County authorities say one woman was killed and her sister-in-law was injured in a stabbing in central Kansas.
Sheriff Glen Kochanowski said 38-eight-year-old Valerie Paulson was stabbed to death Tuesday evening at her home in Assaria. Her sister-in-law, Jessie Putman, who had driven her to the house, was stabbed several times but escaped and was able to drive to Lowe’s in Salina to seek help, Kochanowski said.
Putman was recovering at Salina Regional Health Center after being treated for stab wounds.
KSAL reports that a suspect was arrested Wednesday while eating breakfast in Bennington. He was booked into the Saline County Jail, but charges have not been filed.
