Tallahassee, FL -- One man is dead after a stabbing incident that occurred on Jackson Bluff Rd. yesterday, October 22, 2013.

According to a friend of the victim and eye witness to the incident, 32-year-old Lorenzo Johnson was fighting with his boyfriend, Lakodia Wooten, when he called and asked her to bring him gas money.

Upon arrival, the witness observed an altercation between Johnson, the victim, and Wooten. She says that Wooten declared something to the effect of, "I'll end your life today. I don't care if I go to jail," before Johnson punched Wooten in the face, and Wooten retaliated by stabbing Johnson in the back of the head/neck area, and then the chest.

The witness says that Johnson fell to the ground and Wooten fled the area on foot. She then called 911 and attempted chest compressions on Johnson; Johnson later died from his injuries.

Wooten was apprehended in the apartment complex, and two knives were located under his bed.

Lakodia Wooten has been arrested and charged with 1st Degree Murder.
