TULSA, OK -- Police have arrested two women in connection with a fatal stabbing Saturday in Tulsa.

Officers were called to the area of Fifth Street and South Lewis Avenue at about 9:15 p.m., Sgt. Brian Hill said. The victim, 47-year-old Keith Martin, was found with massive internal injuries.

Witnesses told officers Martin and two women were arguing outside an apartment building on Fourth Place when one of the women pulled a knife and stabbed him in the stomach and arm.

Martin was taken to the hospital in critical condition, Hill said. He later died.

Police arrested 38-year-old Kimberly Railsback at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, jail records show. She was booked into jail on a complaint of first-degree murder.

Railsback admitted to stabbing Martin, but said he attacked her first, according to her arrest report. Witnesses reported the attack was unprovoked.

Laquita "Sunshine" Bruner, 32, was booked into the Tulsa jail at about 2 a.m. on a complaint of accessory after the fact, records show.

In an interview with police, Bruner said she hid the knife used in the stabbing. She led police to where the knife was buried, in the back yard of a residence in the 900 block of South Erie Avenue, where both women were arrested.

Bruner has previous convictions for drug possession and was wanted on two drug-related warrants. Her bond was set at more than $200,000.

Railsback is being held without bond. She was also arrested on several warrants.
