Police have identified a suspect and the victim in a fatal stabbing that occurred in Buckeye on Monday night.

Christopher Lloyd Peters, 43, was arrested on suspicion of fatally stabbing Katherine Linda Linker, 60, in the neck in the 21000 block of West Coronado Road just before 8 p.m., police said.

Police said officers went to the home and saw a man in a bathroom holding a knife. Officers deployed a stun gun to keep him under control, police said. Peters was then taken to the Buckeye Police Department for questioning, police said.  

Medical staff immediately gave aid to Linker in the home and then transported her to a hospital where she died from her injuries, police said.

The couple from Virginia Beach, Virginia, had recently moved into the residence with Linker’s daughter, police said.
