A dirt biker, known as the “Wheelie Queen” for her skill performing stunts as well as her role in the HBO movie Charm City Kings, is accused of fatally stabbing her girlfriend in Maryland on New Year’s Day.

According to the Baltimore Police Department, 33-year-old chef Tiffany Wilson became the city’s first homicide victim of 2021 in the early morning hours of Jan. 1 after her girlfriend Lakeyria Doughty, 26, allegedly plunged a knife into the woman’s chest.

“Investigation revealed evidence of a physical altercation throughout the apartment, which included displaced furniture, scuff marks on the walls, and hair and jewelry consistent with having been forcefully removed from a person during an assault,” reads a police probable cause statement obtained by People.

The statement notes the kitchen, where Doughty was found "covered in blood” near the stabbing victim, “showed a significant amount of blood evidence and a large knife with suspected blood on the blade and handle.”

According to the statement, Doughty allegedly admitted to a 911 dispatcher she and Wilson were arguing when Wilson “produced a knife and stabbed herself” — a claim Doughty denied making.

Doughty later told detectives it was upon returning home early New Year’s Day that she discovered her girlfriend stabbed and holding the knife, the statement alleges.

However, the document states, medical examiner investigators determined Wilson’s fatal injury was “inconsistent with a self-inflicted wound”

Police also claim in the statement they discovered texts on Doughty’s phone that “paint a very disturbing picture” of her relationship with Wilson. “The victim was breaking up with Ms. Doughty and wanted her keys back. The victim repeated this comment over and over in the text messages for Ms. Doughty to leave her alone.”

According to The Baltimore Sun, Doughty’s defense attorney, Andrea Jaskulsky, told a judge Monday: “My client’s position is I didn’t do anything wrong. That this was a self-inflicted wound. I tried to save her.”

Doughty is now being held without bail and faces multiple charges, including first-degree murder and assault. She is due back in Baltimore District Court next month for a preliminary hearing.

“It was a domestic situation where cooler heads didn’t prevail,” Baltimore police spokesman Detective Donny Moses said of the couple, who investigators determined had a history of domestic violence prior to the fatal stabbing.

Thessa Burke told Baltimore’s WJZ-TV that the victim, reportedly a mother to a young child, was a “good girl.”

“You come back to your old hood to see old friends and you hear about this happening. That girl did not deserve this,” Burke said.
