A female dirt biker who appeared in the HBO film “Charm City Kings” has been charged with stabbing her 33-year-old girlfriend, Tiffany Wilson.
According to the Baltimore Police Department, Lakeyria Doughty has been charged with murder, first- and second-degree assault, and assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the alleged crime that took place January 1.
The incident is considered to be Baltimore’s first alleged homicide of 2021.
At around 4:15 a.m., authorities arrived at a residence in the 1200 block of North Stricker Street to investigate reports of a stabbing. Inside, they found Wilson in the kitchen suffering from a stab wound to the left side of her chest. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to a police probable cause statement obtained by People, an "investigation revealed evidence of a physical altercation throughout the apartment, which included displaced furniture, scuff marks on the walls, and hair and jewelry consistent with having been forcefully removed from a person during an assault.”
It adds that "the kitchen where the victim was located showed a significant amount of blood evidence and a large knife with suspected blood on the blade and handle,” and that Doughty was found "covered in blood near the victim."
Officials say Doughty told police that she had come home and found Wilson wounded on the floor holding a knife. Doughty also reportedly said that she called 911 and told a dispatcher that the two "were having an argument when the victim produced a knife and stabbed herself.”
However, after an analysis from medical examiner investigators, the statement said the "injury appeared inconsistent with a self-inflicted wound, contradicting Ms. Doughty's statement to the first responding officers on the scene.”
Though Doughty reportedly claimed that "their relationship was in good standing,” authorities looked at texts between the two which conveyed "a very disturbing picture, one where the victim was breaking up with Ms. Doughty and wanted her keys back.”
"The victim repeated this comment over and over in the text messaged for Ms. Doughty to leave her alone and to meet the next day to get the key back,” the statement added. "Ms. Doughty stated there are other messages on her phone that are not confrontational and paint a different picture of her relationship.”
Police also say Doughty and Wilson had prior domestic incidents in the past.
As reported by the Baltimore Sun, at a bond hearing on Monday, Baltimore District Court Judge Mark Scurti ordered Doughty to be held at Central Booking without bail.
At the hearing, Doughty’s attorney Andrea Jaskulsky claimed that Doughty did not kill Wilson but tried to save her life by performing CPR and calling for help. Jaskulsky also said that Wilson felt down on herself in the preceding days.
“My client’s position is, ‘I didn’t do anything wrong. That this was a self-inflicted wound. I tried to save her,’” the defense attorney told the judge.
Doughty is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in February at Baltimore District Court.
Per WJZ, an area resident told the outlet off-camera that Wilson left behind a young child.
