Salisbury woman stabbed to death; man held

SALISBURY -- A Salisbury man has been charged with the stabbing death Thursday of a former girlfriend, police say.

Tony Lamont Luther, 40, is being held on a murder charge in connection with the death of Tasha Nicole West, 28, whose body was found at an apartment on Calhoun Street in Salisbury, according to police.

Authorities say Luther actually turned himself in to the magistrate’s office before the death had been reported. Police went to the residence where West was living and found her body.

The two had been dating but recently broke up, police say. Luther is scheduled to appear in Superior Court on Friday in Salisbury.
