Police have arrested a suspect in a fatal stabbing that occurred on Friday’s night outside a Houston apartment complex.

Police said Rita Gail Thompson and Jarvis Ryan were drinking beer together when they got into a verbal argument. The argument then escalated into a physical fight and 43-year-old Ryan struck Thompson repeatedly with a tricycle.

Mutual friends broke up the fight, but Thompson got a kitchen knife from inside the apartment. She approached Ryan, who was standing in the parking lot of the apartment complex.

According to reports, Ryan called Thompson a vulgar name and then, she stabbed him in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Thompson was taken into custody at the scene. She later confessed to the incident.
