HUNTINGTON — Court documents state a 23-year-old man fatally stabbed his girlfriend in the throat and hid her body in a crawl space.
Jessie Aaron Blevins of Huntington was arrested and arraigned late Tuesday. He was incarcerated at 1:20 a.m. Wednesday in the Western Regional Jail.
The victim was identified as Elizabeth Grace Cotton, 23, of Huntington, according to a criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court and a press release issued by Huntington Police Capt. Rick Eplin.
The complaint charges that Blevins stabbed Cotton in the throat and then place her body into the crawl space. The crime scene was located at 728 Jackson Ave.
The complaint says investigators filed the first-degree murder charge based upon Blevins’ confession, a statement from a cooperating witness and corroborating evidence collected at the scene.
Police tape and strobing cruiser lights surrounded the home Tuesday night at 728 Jackson Ave. Investigators were called to the scene to check the welfare of a resident. They found a deceased woman and her suspicious death quickly became the city’s second homicide investigation for this year.
Eplin said investigators developed information a crime had taken place. Interviews will continue as police determine a possible motive.
An autopsy will be performed at the state Medical Examiner’s Office in Kanawha County.
I can look out my front door and practically see this place. I have even been right past it while walking my dog, have seen the girl getting in her car too. I even saw the cop cars racing past my front window the night they arrested the guy. First time I have ever lived in a neighborhood where a murder has taken place. It's getting scary. I'm glad I have my CCW permit so I can be armed when walking the dog or heck, just living in the neighborhood.

Never realized Huntington had such a crime problem, my sister-in-law lives there.
It can happen anywhere, anytime. (one of the nicest neighborhoods in the country)
This girl lived 3 houses down from where I live right now.
The pool where she was murdered at is a 5 minute walk up street.
