A man has been charged in the stabbing death of an 81-year-old woman Saturday.

Officers were called to a residence on Willow Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. and found Valeria Mann deceased, according to a Warner Robins Police Department release. She had at least one stab wound to the chest.

The release identified the suspect as Jared Carder, 30. However, the Houston County jail online records identify him as Jared Randall Carter, charged with murder and aggravated assault.

Not other information was released.

The brick home is at the end of Willow Avenue, just east of Parkwood Drive, near Parkwood Elementary and Northside High School. Police were still at the scene Sunday afternoon and had the end of the street blocked off with crime scene tape surrounding the home.

Tax records list Mann as owner of the residence.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Paul Peck at 478-302-5380 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
