A Lawrence County man was arrested Sunday for attacking a woman with a machete.
Christopher Simpson, 28, is charged with one count of first degree murder.
The woman, identified as Michelle Robinson, was found in critical condition on Wisdom Road in the West Point community in Lawrence County Saturday afternoon.
WAAY-TV reported reported the 43-year-old had been attacked with a machete.
Robinson was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville where she later died.
Investigators said evidence collected at the scene linked Simpson to the murder.
Authorities said Robinson was a native of North Carolina and is believed to have come to Lawrence County as a result of a relationship she had developed with Simpson.
Simpson remains jailed without bond.
