Kimberly Black and Sharice Swain sat
in a parked car Thursday
with the motor running
when they got into an argument.
Kimberly left the car,
went into her house,
returned with a knife,
and stabbed Sharice in the face and neck.
Spurting blood, Sharice stepped on the gas pedal
and the car hit Kimberly’s two young children.
Two-year-old Kimshia was killed,
and one-year-old Taraji was hurt.
The car struck a house,
bringing the porch roof crashing down.
Kimberly, twenty-nine, was found naked
several blocks away and arrested.
The women had been
“best friends since birth” and
Sharice considered Kimberly a cousin,
said the victim’s mother, Anita Swain.
