A black college student, accused of stabbing her room mate to death after a row over an iPod, told friends that she didn't mean to do it

Alexis D. Simpson, 19, has been charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder and first-degree assault after her room mate Dominique Frazier, 18, was found unconscious in a second-floor hallway. The news comes as Denise Frazier, the mother of the 18-year-old stabbed to death by her roommate, has told how she begged for her daughter to be separated from her attacker. According to court papers, the confrontation came to a head when Simpson turned off an iPod that Frazier and her friends were listening to. A fight developed as Simpson was asked to turn the music back on. As the other girls yelled at her, Simpson returned with a knife and stabbed Dominique to death. Authorities say that she was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. University police arrived at the scene first and found Frazier in the hallway outside of her second-floor apartment, unconscious and bleeding from the upper torso. Denise Frazier told how her daughter Dominique was put in a room with Alexis Simpson by authorities at Bowie State University and immediately fell out with her. Frazier said that her daughter complained about the tense atmosphere between her and Simpson.
