The Richland County Sheriff’s Department announces the arrest of a woman after a stabbing turns deadly.
Today, March 8, deputies were called to the 200 block of Silver Crest Drive in Northeast Columbia around 12:45 p.m. after receiving calls about a woman being stabbed.
They arrived on the scene and found an injured woman. She was treated and transported by EMS to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Lakeisha Meyers (DOB: 10/16/1995), a relative, was arrested at the scene and charged with Murder. She will be booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
“It is hard to imagine what would cause someone to take the life of their relative,” Sheriff Lott said. “This is a sad example of a domestic dispute gone wrong and a woman lost her life because of it. This family is now left to mourn the loss of both family members.”
