Black PhD candidate Nijinsky Latassia Dix, 37, was arrested and charged with second degree murder in the death of a man she dated for less than three months.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department, Dix, of Jacksonville, Florida, stalked and harassed Terry Hickman, 44, after he began seeing another woman in May.
Police say Dix stalked Hickman to his Washington, DC home, then shot him multiple times. Afterwards, Dix reportedly called her mom while Hickman bled out on the floor behind her.
"The individual stated the defendant called her and stated, 'He pushed me, and I shot him,'" according to a police report.
After being evaluated at a hospital, Dix was taken to police headquarters where she claimed she suffered short-term memory loss.
In a statement, a spokesman said Dix is employed at Notre Dame and the university "is aware of her arrest and will cooperate with law enforcement as appropriate."
Domestic violence against men is on the rise, according to a National Family Violence Survey.
A new study reveals that more men were killed by women in 2017 than in the decade prior. The figures aren't in yet for 2018-2020, but the statistics of women killing men are expected to soar.
In the past, scorned women harmed themselves rather than their men. That is about to change.
