Police in Phoenix say a suspect has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of his 27-year-old ex-girlfriend.

They say 32-year-old Roderick Brooks has been booked in jail on suspicion of first-degree murder.
    
He's being held on a $1 million bond and didn't have a lawyer at his initial court appearance Monday.
    
Police responded to a call about a stabbing Sunday night.
    
When they arrived at the victim's house, witnesses had detained Brooks and say he allegedly stabbed his ex-girlfriend Keshonna Brooks.
    
The two have the same last name, but aren't related.
    
Keshonna Brooks was taken to a hospital where she later died of her injuries.
