Tisihia Allen charged with stabbing murder of Darius Norris in Aurora (36)

The Aurora Police Department has made an arrest in the October 2 death of a man later identified as 24-year-old Darius Norris.

Tisihia Allen, 26, is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder. Get more details below.

Not a lot of details on Allen's Facebook page. The "About" section lists her hometown as Dallas, Texas, and notes that she's in a relationship. No telling if that's still the case, though, given that the Aurora Police Department believes the fatal incident may have arisen from what's described as a "domestic dispute."

At about 8 a.m. on October 2, the APD received a call about a "man down" on the 11900 block of East Cornell Circle. Upon their arrival, they found an unresponsive male later identified as Norris. He was pronounced dead at the scene, presumably of what's described as a "possible stab wound."

Allen was arrested on Wednesday. She's currently being held in Arapahoe County Jail.
