Authorities say they determined where the stabbing took place, the victim's home that he shared with a woman, and the assault took place around 10:15 p.m.

Detectives made their way to the home and processed the scene, authorities said.

Officials determined the victim’s girlfriend, 24-year-old Tamara Lilly, was the suspect in Slade's death.
