• Florida woman accused of fatally stabbing boyfriend

    Updated:
    PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida woman is accused of fatally stabbing her live-in boyfriend in the throat following a night of drinking.

    The Bay County Sheriff's Office said 32-year-old Jonathan Vasta was stabbed early Saturday at his home in Panama City Beach. Deputies arrested 29-year-old Tiffany Shere Jones on a murder charge.

    Maj. Jimmy Stanford tells The News Herald the pair exchanged words just before Vasta was stabbed, but there had not been a physical altercation.

    Stanford says Vasta had been drinking at another woman's home and Jones had been drinking at home, adding that "when he came home, she stabbed him."

    Court records show Jones was arrested in May 2015 after police said she hit and bit her mother, then spit on an arresting officer.

    A lawyer isn't listed on jail records.
