Authorities have arrested a woman and charged her with second-degree murder in the death of her boyfriend in Rocky Mount, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday.
Witnesses told investigators that Amanda Marie Harper, 29, stabbed Cordarious Immanuel Wright, 27, Friday at a mobile home park on Samuel Lane, then left on foot, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies found her walking nearby.
Harper is being held in the Franklin County jail without bond, according to online jail records.
In Franklin County General District Court, both Wright and Harper had a history of misdemeanor charges dating from 2008. Most of charges were traffic violations.
Wright also was convicted in Franklin County Circuit Court of feloniously entering a house to commit assault and battery in 2009, according to online records. He was sentenced to six months in jail with five suspended.
In March 2016, Wright was convicted in circuit court of driving while intoxicated and driving with a revoked license in March 2016. The incident that sparked those charges happened in June 2015, according to court records.
The Sheriff’s Office requests that anyone with additional information about the case call (540) 483-6662.
