An Elk Park man has been charged with murder.

The Avery Journal reports Darrell Lee Callahan, 55, has been charged with murder with no bond.

According to the report, Avery Sheriff Kevin Frye said Callahan called 911 just after midnight Tuesday morning, and said he had stabbed his wife. Frye said Tammy Callahan had been stabbed in the neck and was found dead at the Elk Park School Apartments. Frye said a welfare check was performed a few hours before and Tammy was fine and had said no officers were needed at the residence.

The SBI has been called in to assist in the case and Frye said an official cause of death will not be determined until after an autopsy.
