Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L'Jarius Sneed lost the older brother who raised him after a woman allegedly fatally knifed him in Louisiana.
On the evening of Dec. 10, Angela Washington, 47, got into an argument with 32-year-old T'Qarontarion Harrison at her Minden home, police said. The fight escalated, and she allegedly attacked the victim with a large kitchen knife, stabbing him once in the back and puncturing his lung.
Harrison, who attempted to drive himself to a medical facility and crashed into a building, passed away from his injuries at Ochsner LSU Health Hospital the following morning after undergoing emergency surgery.
Washington currently faces a second-degree homicide charge.
The victim told the Kansas City Star last month that he helped raise 24-year-old Sneed while the future football player’s parents were both incarcerated. As a result, he said, the two had grown “closer than most brothers because of what we went through in life.”

“It was a wonderful experience — something God put us through,” Harrison noted in the interview. “We overcome all obstacles. I wouldn’t trade it for nothing.”
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes called the murder “such a tragic situation,” according to WWL-TV.
“L'Jarius, our hearts go out to him,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said of the defensive player. “Great kid, great player. It's a tough deal. Our organization stepped up and got everybody where they needed to be to go through the grieving process.”
