Police arrested a Frankfort man for allegedly stabbing a woman to death outside a homeless shelter Tuesday morning.

Clifton Sapp, 39, was arrested at the scene on West Second Street Tuesday morning and was later charged with murder, Frankfort Police Sgt. Ryan Belcher said. 

Sapp is believed to be a resident at the shelter, he said, and was acquainted with the victim, who has been identified as Robin S. Jones, through the shelter. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Jones, 56, was a resident of Frankfort. 

Franklin County Coroner Will Harrod said Jones was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:09 a.m.

"We do think they knew each other," he said. "We don't think it was a close relationship."

At this point, police are not releasing many details around the incident.

Sapp is being held without bond in the Franklin County Regional Jail.
