Woman Indicted in Fiancé’s Stabbing Death

April 9, 2019 – A 36-year-old woman was indicted Tuesday on first-degree murder charges for the stabbing death of her fiancé during an argument last December, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Defendant Katrina Taylor is being held on $500,000 bond in the Shelby County Women’s Jail East.
Investigators said Roosevelt Stamps, 48, died of a stab wound to the chest in his car in the 6300 block of North Fawn Hollow Circle in the Hickory Ridge area of southeast Memphis.
The stabbing occurred on Dec. 1, 2018. Taylor surrendered to police the following day.
The case is being handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Marianne Bell of the DA’s Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit which prosecutes felony cases of domestic assault and homicide committed by intimate partners. The Unit also works closely with the Shelby County Family Safety Center to provide services and assistance to victims and their families.
