54-year-old Felicia Carbin was arguing with her roommate, Angela Robinson, about food in the fridge during the early hours of Sunday evening. Robinson confronted Carbin about possibly taking her food out of the refrigerator, leading to the argument. Carbin then went to the kitchen, grabbed a medium-sized butcher knife, faced Robinson, and said, “I’m going to kill y’all, or I am going to kill me!” Robinson told officers that she felt that the statement was targeted toward her and was scared for her life.
Carbin told officers Robinson went into her room without permission, which sparked the argument. She also said Robinson was upset that someone took her food out without her knowledge, which led to Robinson pushing her, causing her to fall. Carbin felt as though she needed a form of self-protection, so she grabbed a knife. She told officers that she had not made any threatening statements toward her.
Officers spoke with a witness, Ms Mccord, who was the homeowner, and she told officers that the argument was about Robinson’s food being removed from the fridge. She also corroborated that Carbin did go to the kitchen for a butter knife and did say, “I’m going to kill y’all, or I am going to kill me!” Due to her statement being almost identical to Robinson’s, officers determined that Carbin was the primary aggressor. Carbin was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault- deadly weapon int/kn.
