St Ann taxi operator 32-year-old Troy Brown has succumbed to stab wounds allegedly inflicted by his 19-year-old girlfriend.

She has since been taken into custody.

It is reported that on Saturday, July 31, Brown and his girlfriend were travelling along the Buxton main road when a dispute developed between them.

The woman allegedly used a knife to stab Brown in his back and buttocks.

Brown was taken to hospital where he was admitted in serious condition.

He later died early yesterday morning.

His girlfriend was then arrested on suspicion of murder.

This is the second fatal domestic dispute in St Ann in a week.

She has since been charged with murder.
