Connecticut woman charged with murder in death of father

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) A Connecticut woman facing a murder charge in the death of her father has said it was an accident and she was trying to defend herself.

Twenty-four-year-old Jessica Keene is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 51-year-old Michael Keene, who was found in his Windsor Locks apartment last Tuesday with stab wounds to the neck and torso.

An arrest warrant affidavit says Jessica Keene told police that her father came at her before she stabbed him with a knife.

He had been reported missing on Thanksgiving but had not been seen since Nov. 11.

Police responded to the apartment after a neighbor called to report an odor.

Jessica Keene was arrested Friday and held over the weekend on $1 million bond.
