GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WYFF) — An Upstate man died hours after being stabbed in the stomach, and a woman is charged in connection to his death.

Greenville County Deputy Coroner Barry Wright said a call about a criminal domestic violence incident at a home on Rutledge Lake Road came in at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Deputies found Tammy Lee Simpson, 52, and Daniel Allen Lee, 47, both with visible injuries.

Wright said Simpson stabbed Lee once in the abdomen with a steak knife.  Lee died at the hospital on Friday, Wright said.

Simpson was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.  She is being held with bond set at $15,000.

The warrant against Simpson said she and Lee had lived together for about four months.

The 13th Solicitor's Office will determine whether the charges will be upgraded.
