A woman is accused of stabbing her roommates until she believed they were dead due to a housing issue, then went shopping.
The incident happened in Marion County, Florida on Monday morning. Deputies at the county sheriff’s office were called to a residence by one of the alleged victims. They claimed their roommate, Christina Adams, 30, stabbed him and another roommate after asking him to stop living with them, which sparked a fight, according to WFLA News.
Deputies then found Adams driving near the scene of the alleged crime. Although she initially denied her housemates’ accusations, she eventually admitted to being stabbed. According to her explanation, she stabbed the two housemates until she believed they were dead. Despite his efforts, the two unnamed people managed to survive the ordeal, although CBS 12 News reported that they were in critical condition on Saturday.
After the attack, Adams claimed she then tried to destroy evidence of the crime and changed into a new pair of clothes before going out shopping. When the deputies found her, she was returning home from the shopping trip. She now faces two counts of attempted first-degree murder and tampering with evidence, and is being held in Marion County Jail without bond.
Adams further explained that she started hatching a plan to kill her roommates after they first told her she would have to move out, about two months ago. Friday morning’s argument was sparked after they told him to leave by Saturday, CBS 12 reported.
Adams made other alarming statements about her own mental state to investigators, saying she believed herself to be a sociopath and had an undiagnosed case of dissociative identity disorder.
“These senseless acts of violence are shocking to all of us. I am so proud of my deputies and detectives who worked so quickly to not only come to the aid of the victims, but also to capture such an evil person and ensure that our streets are safe,” Marion County Sheriff William Woods said in a statement.
Newsweek contacted the Marion County Sheriff’s Office for comment.
Another macabre stabbing incident occurred in New Orleans early last month when a mother allegedly stabbed her two children amid a heated custody battle. After the woman posted a disturbing video on Instagram, the father of the children, aged 4 and 2, rushed to her home to rescue them. The eldest child, a girl, eventually succumbed to her injuries and died.
