NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A woman wanted in connection with a fatal stabbing at a Murfreesboro Pike motel is now in custody, Metro Police said Saturday night.

Police said Christina Walker, 32, who is accused fatally stabbing a 44-year-old man inside a room at the HomeTowne Studios motel on Murfreesboro Pike, was located at a Glastonbury Road apartment and taken into custody without incident.

On the morning of July 30, police responded to the extended stay motel shortly after 6 a.m. and found 44-year-old Charles Wyche dead from multiple stab wounds inside the second floor room.

According to the arrest affidavit, a witness told police Walker had been staying at the hotel for a short time and invited the victim to “hang out,” and allegedly solicit intercourse between the witness and herself.

When the victim arrived, the witness allegedly declined intercourse. However, Walker agreed. During the act, Walker allegedly got enraged, grabbed a knife, and attacked the victim, killing him. The witness attempted to stop Walker, but she then cut the witness, and the witness then fled the room.

Another witness who saw Walker flee described her as having a “demonic look” on her face.

Interviews with other people on the property led officials to identify Walker as a suspect.
