ABSECON — An Atlantic City woman was charged Friday with stabbing a 37-year-old man with a kitchen knife inside a Clayton Avenue home, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office announced.
Khaleeia Bass, 34, was arrested after police received a call at 8:25 p.m. Thursday reporting Atlantic City man Kenneth Fenwick had been stabbed inside the home in the 500 block, the Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
Police found Fenwick inside the home with a stab wound to the chest and Bass with "evidence of blood on her clothes," according to the affidavit of probable cause. They also located a kitchen knife covered in blood on the property.
One person who was at the house earlier in the day told investigators Bass and Fenwick had been in a verbal fight, the affidavit says.
Authorities said they believe Fenwick was in a domestic relationship with Bass. He was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, where he died.
Bass was charged with first-degree murder and third-degree possession of a knife for an unlawful purpose.
She is being held in the Atlantic County jail. A detention hearing is scheduled for Nov. 7.
