UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) -- A Pierce County, Wash., sheriff's spokesman says a woman has been found fatally stabbed in the Tacoma suburb of University Place and an Amber Alert has been issued for her missing 9-month-old daughter.

The sheriff's department says officers are searching for a 23-year-old man described as the dead woman's ex-boyfriend. They think he fled in an older blue or purple Chevrolet Caprice with a loud exhaust.

The News Tribune says neighbors report a man dropped the victim off Monday evening at her duplex. They say she yelled, "He's killing me" as she got out of the vehicle.

Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says the woman was found dead inside the duplex.
