A University of Arizona student whose roommate had recently accused her of stealing is suspected of killing the woman during a fight in their dorm room, authorities said in Tucson.

Galareka Harrison, 18, will be booked on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Mia Henderson, also 18, university spokesman Johnny Cruz said.

Cruz said he did not have any details on the fight between Harrison and Henderson, of the Navajo Nation. He did not say how Henderson died, but university police Sgt. Eugene Mejia said she had injuries "consistent with stabbing."
