You didn't quite get that right... "Officers from the Ypsilanti Police Department were dispatched to an apartment in the 400 Blk. of S. Hamilton on a call of a stabbing. Upon arrival, Officers found the 45 year old male victim breathing but unresponsive. The victim was transported to SJMH where he was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival. The victim has been identified as Keith Edward Walton. The victim's 46 year old live in girlfriend has been arrested and it appears that the two were involved in an argument that turned physical and led to the stabbing. The suspect was transported to WCJ for lodging until arraignment. Detectives are following up on other information regarding this incident. Suspect information will be released after arraignment."
