COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 38-year-old man is now in custody after a woman was stabbed to death and another injured in Cookeville Wednesday night. 

Andrew Price was wanted for his alleged connection to the death of 22-year-old Kelsea Lamb.  

Cookeville police reported officers were called to a  stabbing on Foundation Drive Wednesday evening.

Arriving officers reportedly found Lamb and a 28-year-old woman suffering from stab wounds. 

Medics administered CPR before both women were taken to Cookeville Regional Medical Center where Lamb died. The other woman was treated for her injuries and released.  

Investigators determined Price was engaged in an argument with Lamb when he assaulted and stabbed her. The other woman tried to intervene when she was also stabbed, according to police.  

Price fled the scene in the victim’s 2012 gray or silver Infiniti G25 sedan.  

He was taken into custody just before 6 a.m. after officers with the Livingston Police Department spotted the vehicle. 

Attempts to stop Price were unsuccessful until officers employed a PIT maneuver on Highway 111 in Algood, according to Cookeville police. 

Price was taken into custody and booked into the Putnam County jail on a $550,000 bond.

Warrants for Price’s arrest include second-degree murder, aggravated assault, felony theft and bond violations. 

No additional information was immediately released.
