WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. -

The Washington County, Tennessee Sheriff's Office held a news conference on Tuesday afternoon to release more details about a deadly crash.

The accident happened on Knob Creek Boat Dock Road when deputies say a car left the roadway, hit a tree, and burst into flames.

Investigators said Bounleua Sonekeo, 38, and Misty Dawn Sonekeo, 36, died Monday morning. "They were in the middle, of what I can understand, a separation," says Sheriff Ed Graybeal.

They believe Misty Sonekeo was stabbed some time before the accident. "[Investigators] found large blood splatters and a lot of blood on the bed," says Sheriff Graybeal. "You can see where he had taken her downstairs to the car, put her in the car and they left the residence at that time."

Deputies said an autopsy will determine if she died from being stabbed or as a result of the crash.
