WESTMINSTER, S.C. - A Westminster couple is accused of stabbing the woman's father multiple times, slitting his throat, then leaving him in their shared home to die.

Oconee County Sheriff's Capt. Travis Tilson says deputies responded to the family's home on Tuesday afternoon and found the body of 71-year-old Donald Davis.

Addis says Davis died early Tuesday. Authorities say Davis was stabbed after a fight with his daughter, Christine Black, and her husband, John Black Jr.

The couple was arrested Wednesday in Hart County, Georgia, driving Davis' minivan. They are charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and it wasn't immediately known if they had attorneys.
