Court papers say Simpson then said: 'I didn't mean to do it. Yall don't know what I've been through. You all jumped me.'According to court papers the confrontation came to a head on Thursday 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 she was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Investigators believe the two women got into an argument in their suite that turned into a fight.
Miss Simpson fled but later turned herself in to county police. Police have not identified her until charges are filed.
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.
Mrs Frazier said her daughter complained about the tense atmosphere between her and Simpson.But according to the Washington Post, when she offered to have her transferred, she refused saying, 'no mom, we're just having words now.'
Greg Shipley, a spokesman for Maryland State Police, said a preliminary investigation indicated that the victim and suspect had a verbal argument that 'escalated into a fight and culminated in the stabbing', according to Maryland Community News.They do not yet know what Simpson used when she allegedly stabbed her room mate and are waiting for a search warrant to be approved.
Classes were cancelled today, according to Bowie State’s website.
Scene: Bowie State University where the stabbing took placeCassandra Robinson, a university spokeswoman, said the university held a community gathering this afternoon for students and faculty to 'share their grief and get support from the counselling staff'.
'There was a visible calm and quiet solitude, even in a room with hundreds of people,' she said. 'Everyone is in their own way trying to deal with the magnitude of this.'Certainly whenever an event of this nature takes place, it gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect, and re-examine everything we’re doing.'After the service, a prayer circle for the murdered student formed in the middle of the campus mall, with one woman collapsing to her knees as the students prayed together.
Damial Fletcher, a 19-year-old from Frederick who was friends with the victim, told The Baltimore Sun: 'It's an eye opener. If you have a dispute, it's not worth fighting over. Dominique lost her life over something trivial.
'We come to college to mature ourselves, but sometimes still act like children. She was so popular and out-going. If you were having the worst day of your life, she'd make you just laugh.'
A state police spokesman said that two other roommates were present during the attack.
Simpson is being held at the Prince George’s County Detention Center without bond. She does not yet have an attorney listed in online court records.
