MTSU Basketball Player Clantina ‘Tina’ Stewart Fatally Stabbed

Posted on: March 2nd, 2011Joshua Holmes
MTSU Blue Raiders women’s basketball player Clantina ‘Tina’ Stewart was fatally stabbed earlier tonight in her Murfreesboro, Tennessee apartment.
The killing took place around 7:00 pm at a local apartment complex near the MTSU campus according to News Channel 5.
Police received an anonymous 911 call from Raiders Crossing Apartment on Hazelwood Street just before 7:00 p.m. Wednesday. Police said that two females assaulted Stewart. Stewart was taken to Middle Tennessee Medical Center with multiple trauma wounds, where she died from her injuries.
One suspect was arrested and taken in for questioning along with an eye witness. A second suspect escaped the scene of the crime as police officers were arriving.
UPDATE: Murfreesboro police arrested Stewart’s freshman roommate Shanterrica Madden who has been charged with 1st degree murder according to the Daily News Journal.
“There was an argument,” Murfreesboro Police Spokesman Kyle Evans said. “During that argument, Madden stabbed the victim.”
Madden describes herself on her Twitter page as: “I am a freshman at MTSU. I am a sweetheart to be around and I love my family and friends.”

Middle Tennessee State University is located in Murfreesoboro, TN and boasts an enrollment of well over 22,000 students.

A very sad day for all Blue Raiders and for the Murfreesboro community.  My personal thoughts and prayers go out to Tina’s family and friends for their loss.
