GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenwood police say a woman has been charged in the stabbing death of a man following a domestic incident on Monday.

Police said officers responded to a call about a man who bleeding profusely from what appeared to be a cut wound.

The Greenwood County Coroner's Office said the victim, later identified as 27-year-old William Jamaal Johnson, was involved in a verbal altercation when he was stabbed in the chest.

The coroner ruled Johnson's death a homicide.

Officers charged 30-year-old Tiffany Janae Carroll with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Police say it is believed that Carroll and Johnson were involved in some sort of altercation and during the argument, Carroll grabbed a knife and used it to stab Johnson.

She is currently behind bars at the Greenwood County Detention Center.

"This is a needless tragedy that should not have occurred. If you or someone you know is having trouble at home, please seek help," the police department's post read.
