Cierra Alexis Sutton, a Texas woman, has been arrested after fleeing from police. She is being accused of murdering and dismembering her boyfriend.
According to USA Today, Sutton has been charged with the murder of Steven Coleman. Detectives say the crime happened earlier this summer following a heated argument.

Sutton’s 10-year-old daughter was reportedly home at the time.
