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.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Attorneys in the murder trial of a former Middle Tennessee State University freshman who stabbed to death her roommate presented very different pictures of the problems that lead to a deadly fight last year.
Lawyers gave those differing views during opening statements Wednesday in the murder trial of Shanterrica Madden. The 19-year-old is accused of stabbing her former roommate to death, MTSU basketball player Tina Stewart.
Madden, who is charged with first-degree murder, is claiming that she acted in self-defense.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Middle Tennessee State University says an alumnus has donated $10 million to the school's Centennial fundraising campaign — the largest gift from an alumnus in the school's history.
The announcement of the gift by Nashville entrepreneur Woody Miller is part of MTSU's public launch of its $80 million Centennial Campaign. The campaign has been in a "quiet phase" since before the University observed its 100th anniversary last Sept. 11. Miller's gift has helped boost the campaign's early commitments to nearly $54 million.
