        HAMILTON — A man accused of stabbing a woman 47 times has been indicted on a murder charge by a Butler County grand jury.

        Martin Rivera Carrillo, 34, of Hamilton is charged with killing Tracey Jean Roark, 38, of Hamil ton after picking her up in his van July 15.

        Police said Mr. Rivera gave this account of the incident:

        Ms. Roark grabbed $40 off his dashboard and tried to leave the van. When he stopped her, she grabbed a knife he used for his dry-wall work. A struggle ensued and Ms. Roark was stabbed.

        Police stopped Mr. Rivera later that morning when they saw blood inside his van. Mr. Rivera had blood on his hands, shirt, pants and books, as well as what appeared to be human hair on his boots, police said.

        Police said when they interviewed Mr. Rivera, he appeared angry that Ms. Roark had tried to take his money.

        Mr. Rivera is being held in the Butler County Jail.

        Butler County's coroner, Dr. Richard Burkhardt, said Ms. Roark bled to death.
