Normally the term “Until Death Do Us Part” is reserved for after the wedding, but this woman wasted no time in separating from her husband-to-be.
Na Cola Darcel Franklin, 31, appears disheveled with her eyes swollen and red from tears in her mugshot taken at the Whitehall Township police station in Pennsylvania following the incident.
She has been charged with criminal homicide after stabbing fiance Billy Rafael Brewster, 36, twice after an argument early on Saturday morning.
Franklin allegedly attacked Brewster in their Pennsylvania apartment they lived in with their three children.
Police found Brewster bleeding profusely from his chest around 2AM Saturday morning, a mere eight hours before the scheduled 10AM wedding.
There were four children in the apartment during the time of the attack, but their identities and relationships are being withheld.
Brewster was transported to Lehigh Valley Hospital and was pronounced dead at 3.24am.
According to the Allentown Morning Call, Franklin exclaimed, amidst tears, ‘I did not kill him on purpose,’ during her video arraignment Saturday morning.
As the investigation is ongoing, a motive has not yet been established, nor has the type of knife been revealed.
Franklin is being held at Lehigh County Prison without bail.
