The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office on Monday announced they are investigating a homicide that occurred on Christmas Eve near Pavillion.
The sheriff’s office said that they received a 911 call at 8:46pm on December 24 from an individual who said a man had sustained a significant injury to the chest.
When deputies arrived they found a 41-year old man with an apparent stab wound to the chest.
“Deputies and ambulance crews attempted to render aid but the man did not survive,” the office said in a release.
After a preliminary investigation, a 39-year old Pavillion area female, Bennilee Strock, was arrested in connection with the man’s death.
Authorities have identified the deceased man as Jeffery Stock.
Bennilee Strock is currently being held at the Fremont County Detention Center on the charge of Murder in the Second Degree.
“There is no evidence to suggest that anyone other than the 39-year old female was involved in the man’s death and there is no danger to the community,” the office said. “The investigation is active and additional details will be released at a later time.”
