The Knox County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a woman inside her home. 

The Sheriff's Office was called to the 12000 Block of North Scott Road Friday shorty before 7 p.m. in reference to a deceased woman inside the home. 

Authorities say it was discovered the woman, identified as Jasmin Lee Hatfield, had suffered severe wounds to her body. 

We're told Mrs. Hatfield lived at the home with her husband, Kevin Hatfield, who was not home at the time deputies arrived. 

The Sheriff's Office says during the investigation, Keven Hatfield became a suspect in his wife's death. 

Authorities say Hatfield was stopped and detained in Sullivan County, Indiana by the Sullivan County Sheriff and Indiana State Trooper. 

Knox County Deputies transported Kevin Hatfield to the Knox County Jail where he was booked for the charge of murder.
