The Marion County Sheriff’s Office got a call at around 8:03 a.m. from a victim who claimed that he and another person were stabbed by Christina Adams, 30, that morning.

Deputies said Adams was found near driving near the crime scene. She initially denied the accusation during an interview with deputies, but later admitted that she stabbed the roommates after they asked her to leave the home they shared with her.

Adams confessed to getting a large knife and stabbing both roommates to the point where she thought they were dead, according to the sheriff’s office.

After the stabbing, Adams said she tried to destroy evidence of the attack, changed her clothes, left the home, and went shopping. Deputies located her while she was on her way back.
