UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — A judge has ordered a 19-year-old Bowie State University student accused of fatally stabbing a roommate last week held without bond.

Alexis Simpson was ordered held without bond Monday. Her attorney, Michael Worthy, said in court that the stabbing was a “tragic accident” and that his client acted in self-defense.

A prosecutor disagreed, saying Simpson had made a choice to end Dominique Frazier’s life.

Court documents say Simpson fatally stabbed Frazier inside their dormitory style apartment after the two women argued about music playing from an iPod.

A preliminary hearing was set for Oct. 14.

    I’m glad she is being held. Her life is ruined and the other girl is dead. What a tragic lose. I’m sure this sudden rage was instantly regretted, but it is to late, she must pay for her crime.
