LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested two people authorities say stabbed a female victim.

Jeffery Quick, 54, and Tonya Schweickert, 43, were arrested Saturday.

According to arrest reports, the victim told police Quick and Schweickert stabbed her because of a dispute over money. The victim described the weapon used as a "kitchen type knife." It was found at Quick and Schweickert's home in the 400 block of East Caldwell, near South Jackson Street.
