Second Day of Testimony in Madden Murder Trial
MURFREESBORO, Tenn (AP) — Murfreesboro Police Officer Kristy Inglish has testified that the former Middle Tennessee State University student accused of killing her roommate during a fight never complained of any injury.
Shanterrica Madden has claimed self-defense, saying she was being beaten up when she stabbed Tina Stewart with a knife that she found on Stewart's bed.
The Daily News Journal reports Inglish drove Madden to the police station on the night of the stabbing, March 2, 2011.
The fight came after Stewart, a Lady Raiders basketball player, called apartment management to complain that Madden was smoking marijuana. Testimony showed Stewart was afraid of failing a drug test and losing her basketball scholarship.
Madden is charged with first degree murder. Prosecutors claim Madden took the knife into Stewart's room to attack her.
