A JURY has convicted the roommate of slain Middle Tennessee women's basketball player
of second-degree murder.
The jury delivered the verdict Monday against 19-year-old Shanterrica Madden after deliberating for about 2 hours.
Stewart was fatally stabbed in the chest March 2, 2011, at the off-campus apartment the two shared in Murfreesboro. Madden acknowledged stabbing Stewart but claimed it was self-defense against her larger and more athletic roommate.
Prosecutors had argued for first-degree murder when they said that the killing was premeditated and intentional after Stewart reported Madden for smoking marijuana.
