PARIS, Ky. (AP) — A woman’s boyfriend has been accused of fatally stabbing her estranged husband in Bourbon County.

Police tell local media that 27-year-old Jonathan Scalf, a former Navy sailor from Berea, was stabbed in front of a Paris home on Tuesday night.

Twenty-nine-year-old Daniel Martin is charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence.

Scalf’s family tells WKYT-TV (http://bit.ly/1W5e8Yi) the victim was attacked when he was visiting his daughter at his estranged wife’s home. Scalf later died inside a hospital.

According to court documents, Scalf admitted to hitting his wife in July and was barred from contacting the woman or visiting her home.

Police say Martin was captured early Wednesday morning when a Lexington police K-9 unit found him hiding under a truck less than a mile away. Online jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
