TAMPA, Florida (WFLA) – A Florida woman has been charged with attempted first-degree murder after she allegedly stabbed her housemates during an argument Friday morning, deputies say.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office received a call around 8:03 a.m. from a victim who claimed he and another person were stabbed by Christina Adams, 30, that morning.
Deputies said Adams was found driving near the crime scene. She initially denied the charge in an interview with MPs but later admitted she stabbed the housemates after they asked her to leave the house they shared with her.
Adams confessed to getting a large knife and stabbing the two housemates to the point where she thought they were dead, according to the sheriff’s office.
After the stabbing, Adams said she tried to destroy evidence of the attack, changed clothes, left the house and went shopping. Deputies located her on her way home.
“These senseless acts of violence shock us all,” Sheriff Billy Wood said. “I’m very proud of my deputies and detectives who worked so quickly to not only help the victims, but capture such an evil person and make sure our streets are safe.”
Adams was charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder and tampering with evidence.
