An argument between two female roommates ended Friday with one fatally stabbed and the suspect jailed on a murder complaint.

Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer said the incident occurred Friday at the apartments of an assisted living facility located in the area of Moccasin Trail Road and SH 99, which is in the far northeastern part of the county.

When REACT EMS paramedics arrived at the scene, they found Shannon Holloway, 48, was deceased, Palmer said.

He said a witness told deputies Holloway was attacked and stabbed multiple times by her new roommate. Palmer said it appears the suspect, Phyllis Rhone, 55, had been living on the assisted living side of the facility but had moved into the apartment with Holloway just a couple of days ago.
