This morning, while perusing my Twitter timeline, I spotted this story about a Middle Tennessee basketball player's roommate being charged with her murder. The first thing I thought was a lover's quarrel had gotten out of hand. I intended to write a post this morning, but it completely slipped my mind. Thanks to loyal reader Nicole B. for refreshing my memory.

Rutherford County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lisa Marchesoni said 18-year-old Shanterrica Madden was charged with first degree murder in Stewart's death. She is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.

Police spokesman Kyle Evans said Madden stabbed Stewart during an argument.

Two others were ruled out as suspects after police interviewed them.

The 21-year-old Stewart had multiple wounds when authorities found her, Evans said. She was taken to Middle Tennessee Medical Center and was later pronounced dead.

Middle Tennessee president Sidney McPhee, who spoke with Stewart's father, said at a news conference that the entire university is grieving over the death of "a wonderful, talented and vibrant young woman." McPhee said Stewart had spent the past three Thanksgivings with his family because she could not return home for the holiday.

"The anguish I feel as a father and a president ... but personally as a father with a daughter about the age of Tina cannot adequately be expressed with words," McPhee said.

Counselors have been alerted to help on campus.

Athletic director Chris Massaro was emotional at the news conference.

"This is an unspeakable tragedy to one of our family members," Massaro said. "Our biggest concern is with Tina and her family. The team is devastated, but we'll work through this together ... one step at a time."

    Give me a break. This is just ONE lesbian murder that probably was the result of an accident.

  • StillASassyOne

    Wow! This is sad! See- reason #3 why I've never wanted a female roommate. Sometimes, you can't even close your eyes around them bishes. One of my homegirls and her roommate her 1st year in college got into it so bad that her roommate set my friends' clothes on fire and my friend...well.....she got arrested that night. :coffee:

    But my prayers and condolences goes out to the victim of this crime. I hope Madden gets stabbed a few times while in jail. They making shanks out of melted down Jolly Ranchers these days.

    Better hide yo' candy, bish!!

  • StillASassyOne

    Ya'll both going to hell! I saw that and had a not-so-nice comment to make about both the victim and the accused's hairlines, but thought it was an omen to make jokes about the deceased in such a way. :ashamed:

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    :rofl: All lesbians fight like dudes. :lol:

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

  • StillASassyOne

    Somebody really killed somebody over a $20 bill? And it wasn't a robbery attempt gone wrong?

    Are you serious?!

    WTF can you do with $20 that's worth killing over!! I can barely get a 1/4 tank of gas with that!!

    Wow! People have lost their damned minds!

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    The reason most black women's hair look a mess in their mugshots is because the guards force them to remove their weaves, extensions, etc. before they are processed into jail. Even if they have to use scissors to cut the extensions off. :lol:

  • StillASassyOne

    Sandra-

    You was JUST cracking on Willow Smith & Justin Bieber (who only just turned 17, right?)

    Bobbi Kris will be 18 this year!! She is no longer considered a kid!! Can you PLEASE do a post on her?! Just this once?!?!

  • StillASassyOne

    Ohhhhh!!! That explains a lot.... :think:

    Well, at least if I ever get processed, I won't have to worry about that.
