A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH IS NOW IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF NORTHEASTERN KANSAS UNTIL 10:00PM CDT.
Police said Stephen Jones was arrested without incident Thursday at a family member's home in Hutchinson. He's being held on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Sabrina Jones.
Officers were called to a Hutchinson home on a welfare check at 1:30 a.m. Thursday and found the woman dead. Police Capt. Troy Hoover said investigators are waiting for results of an autopsy to reveal the cause of death.
Hoover declined to say whether any sort of weapon was found at the scene.
The Hutchinson News reported that none of Sabrina Jones' three children, ages 4 to 12, were home at the time. They are currently staying with family members.
