A woman stabbed three people — one of them fatally — during a fight at a Philadelphia area college and now faces a murder charge, prosecutors said.
Nydria Smith, 39, was arrested in connection to the Feb. 16 fight at a Lincoln University dorm, according to the Chester County District Attorney’s Office. She was the sister of one of the people involved in a fight.
On Feb. 16, Lincoln University police were called to the dorm for a reported fight. When they arrived, officers found Jawine Evans in a grassy area with a knife wound to the neck, prosecutors said.
Two other victims had also been stabbed.
Paramedics came to the scene and pronounced Evans dead, prosecutors said. The two other victims were taken to the hospital for treatment.
Deceives learned the stabbing happened in the first-floor hallway, which had blood spattered on the floors, walls and doors.
Video surveillance showed Smith stabbing Evan’s neck, and the victim staggered back. The video showed Evans yelling, “she stabbed me,” and grabbing the right side of her neck, according to prosecutors.

The video also showed Smith stabbing the other victims and six other students were in danger of being attacked, prosecutors noted.
A witness provided a video that showed the fight that happened before the stabbing, and it involved Evans’ brother.
Prosecutors said they identified Smith as a suspect and found her blood-stained clothing at a home.
Smith was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, third-degree murder, possessing an instrument of crime, aggravated assault and other charges. She is being held in jail without bail.
