Police investigate fatal stabbing

        WILLIAMSBURG — The Clermont County Sheriff's Office late Sunday was investigating the apparent stabbing death of a 51-year-old woman in her Williamsburg residence.

        Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg identified the woman as Leona Arnett McCord of the 500 block of East Main Street. The woman was killed “apparently by multiple stab wounds to the chest,” the sheriff said.

        Police said the slaying occurred about 5:30 p.m. in the Main Street residence the woman shared with Danny R. McCord, who was taken into custody.

        “Apparently this arose out of long-standing domestic problems,” Sheriff Rodenberg said. Ms. McCord had filed two outstanding domestic-violence charges and had a criminal protection order pending against Mr. McCord, the sheriff said.

        Mr. McCord was arrested in Bethel, Sheriff Rodenberg said. Mr. McCord was charged with driving under the influence and incarcerated in the Clermont County Jail. Charges in connection with the death are expected to be filed soon, the sheriff said.

        The body was transported to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office for an autopsy.

        Mr. McCord is scheduled to appear in Clermont Municipal Court at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
