A 19-year-old Bowie State University student accused of stabbing and killing her suitemate after a dispute over music was indicted Thursday on charges of murder and carrying a dangerous weapon openly.
Alexis Simpson had been jailed since last month, when she was arrested in connection with the Sept. 15 slaying of 18-year-old Dominique Frazier.
Police have said that Simpson turned off an iPod that was playing in the suite, then stabbed Frazier in the neck after the two got into a fight about it.
Frazier and Simpson were suitemates in Bowie State University’s Christa McAuliffe residence hall and had ongoing tensions, police have said.
Simpson had already been charged with first-degree murder by Maryland State Police investigators. The indictment was an expected, procedural step that moves Simpson’s case to Prince George’s County Circuit Court.
