A 36-year-old Toyota employee was found covered in blood from a fatal stabbing outside a Georgetown townhouse Tuesday, according to the Scott County coroner’s office.

An Indiana woman was charged with manslaughter Tuesday afternoon as a result of the murder investigation, according to the Georgetown Police Department.

About 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, a woman heard a loud thud outside her window at the Mill Townhouse complex on Iron Loop Path, according to WKYT, the Herald-Leader’s reporting partner. When she looked outside, she saw the victim on the ground, WKYT reported.

Police found Mathew A. Turner, of Georgetown, on the sidewalk in front of his yard, according to Scott County Coroner John Goble. He was pronounced dead at 1:10 a.m., Goble said.

Turner died from sharp-force injuries to his neck, according to Goble. Georgetown police said he was stabbed once.

Georgetown Assistant Police Chief Robert Swanigan told WKYT witnesses said they heard a verbal argument prior to the stabbing.

Turner was an employee for the Toyota plant in Georgetown and is a native of Indiana, Goble said.

Cassandra Carson, of Lawrenceburg, Ind. was arrested Tuesday afternoon. In addition to her first-degree manslaughter charge, she is charged with a violation of an emergency protection order. She has been placed in the Scott County Detention Center.

Indiana court records show that a woman with the same name was sentenced on a charge of domestic battery resulting in moderate bodily injury in Dearborn Superior Court in December. A probation violation was filed in that case in May.
