— A Harnett County woman has been charged with the murder of a boyfriend who she said she found dead in a recliner inside their home.

Sharron Ivette Allen was arrested on Thursday. She was being held in the Harnett County Detention Center under no bond. Her first court date is Monday.

Harnett County deputies responded to 79 Patterson St. in Lillington just before 8 p.m. on Wednesday. They found Michael Renard Foxx, 51, dead in the recliner. Allen, 53, said she woke up from a nap and found Foxx unresponsive.

Deputies notated some inconsistencies at the scene and several small wounds on Foxx’s body. An investigation by the medical examiner's office concluded the wounds on Foxx's body were stab wounds.

A search warrant a day later at the home led to Allen's arrest.
