A man was found stabbed to death in an Ella Boulevard apartment this morning, and reports indicate a) the woman he was living with said she had done it, and b) she then left the body in the apartment for days.

Police were called to an apartment in the 2100 block of Ella Boulevard shortly after midnight this morning, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The wife -- whose name, along with that of the victim, was not released -- "said she had stabbed a man to death," the paper reports. No charges have yet been filed. Update: The police have arrested the woman, Jamie Anne Skelton, 40, and she faces murder charges.

KHOU says they received a call to check on the welfare of a resident from a neighbor who said the woman had told her there was a dead man in the apartment. The victim was found stabbed to death in the kitchen.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
