TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Police in Tulsa say a 60-year-old woman has been stabbed to death at a motel and a suspect is in custody. Sgt. Robert Rohloff says the woman was stabbed several times in the chest while in her room about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and collapsed while trying to get to the motel lobby. Police say witnesses chased the 26-year-old suspect until police arrived and were able to catch the man, who has been arrested. No names have been released. It's the city's 81st homicide of the year.
