Twenty minutes after a Florida woman told others never to let a man put his hands on a woman, she killed her boyfriend.
She now faces a life behind bars.
This month, Jaquoia Xiaxiana Collins, 27, is set to appear before Escambia County Circuit Court Judge W. Joel Boles for her sentencing hearing. Collins pleaded no-contest charge of second-degree murder with a weapon for the stabbing death of her boyfriend Quartez Deshawn McShane, 21.
According to NorthEscambia.com, on July 6, 2019, officers responded to the 800 Block of North Highway 29 at the Wild Oak Apartments after receiving a call regarding an unresponsive stabbing victim. McShane was found lying on his back in the road close to the driver's door of a Mitsubishi Galant.
The victim barely had a pulse with a large puncture wound in his sternum. In addition, blood splatter was also evident on the car's exterior. McShane was rushed to the hospital but later died from his wound.
After Investigators identified Collins on a surveillance video footage running away from the car, they later discovered she had posted on Facebook 20 minutes before the fatal incident that women should never allow a man to put their hands on them. However, it is not clear what triggered the violent altercation.
After the defendant was arrested, McShane's mother, Samantha Allen, appealed to the court to grant Collins bail despite her son's demise.
"I know Jaquoia, and I would like for her to have bond, if you don't mind. Because I know that she's a good mother. I'm hurting. I'm broken. But I know she has kids, and I want her to get her affairs in order, for her kids. She has my grandbaby. And I forgive her. And I love her. And I don't know if she intentionally tried to do it. It's up to you," said Allen, according to Pensacola News Journal.
Nevertheless, the defendant was denied bail. Now, she faces spending the rest of her life in custody.
