WGNS has more information on the 27 year old woman arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder on Monday afternoon (10/29/18).
Elsa Crafford of Penn Court in Murfreesboro was charged after police responded to Parkview Flats on Bradyville Pike. Once at the apartment complex, officers learned that a man was stabbed in the neck. Employees of the apartment were rendering aid to their tenant Matthew Burchell until paramedics arrived. The victim advised that Crafford stabbed him.
Police then searched for the woman and eventually found that she fled the scene in a car and later wrecked on Highway 99 at Jackson Ridge Road.
During questioning, Crafford told officers that the victim was an acquaintance of hers and that she told him to get undressed for a massage. After the victim laid down on his stomach she got on top of him and stabbed him once in the neck with a knife, according to the MPD Arrest Report.
The woman is being held in the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center under a $250,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on December 10, 2018 for the attempted first degree murder charge.
