A Brandon woman was charged with the murder of her fiancé just after Valentine’s. Two children were asleep in the home at the time of the incident.
According to authorities, Rankin County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call just after midnight on Wednesday morning regarding a stabbing on Audubon Circle in Brandon.
Upon their arrival, a woman described as “very upset” met them at the door and asked them to “save her fiancé,” who was found with a stab wound in his chest.
Responders tried to save the victim, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ashley Tanner Shaw, 23, was placed under arrest for murder given the circumstances and transported to the Rankin County Jail, where she was charged and booked for the murder and obstruction of justice.
During her initial appearance in the Rankin County Court, Shaw was denied bond.
Two children who were sleeping in the home at the time of the stabbing were taken by the Child Protective Services.
