(ROCKPORT) - Police in Southern Indiana have a man charged with murder from a stabbing death from yesterday in Spencer County’s Rockport.

State Police Sgt. Chad Dick reports 38-year-old Jason Eric Watson of Rockport is charged with stabbing his aunt, Terri Ann Smithers, to death around dinnertime yesterday.

Dick says Watson was picked up on scene and taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville for treatment of his own knife wounds, and during the investigation, detectives found enough probable cause to charge Watson with murder.

Watson was taken directly to Spencer County jail after release from the hospital.
