Former Bowie State Student Found Not Guilty Of Fatally Stabbing Roommate

Former Bowie State student Alexis Simpson has been found not guilty in the fatal stabbing of her roommate Dominique Frazier in their dorm in September of last year.

A jury came back with the not-guilty verdict on all seven counts, reports NBC Washington, after hearing testimony this week. Simpson took the stand herself, saying that she didn't start the fight, and never intended to fatally stab Frazier.

A friend of the victim took the stand as well, according to NBC, and testified that she didn't believe Simpson intended to cut Frazier.
