A 27-year-old Peoria woman is dead after police say her coworker's estranged husband stabbed her at the loan center where they worked.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says Mary Sue Roberts was pronounced dead early Saturday at an area hospital after suffering a stab wound to the chest.

Police say Roberts was working at the TitleMax loan center with a colleague Friday afternoon when the colleague's estranged husband, 30-year-old Kenon Allen, came in and started a confrontation.

He allegedly stabbed both women and fled the store.

Allen turned himself in to the county jail within an hour.

The sheriff's office says he's being held without bond on charges including first-degree murder, attempted murder and violation of an order of protection.
