Murder suspect charged with stabbing boyfriend

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A woman is in jail charged with Albany's first homicide of the year. Police say she stabbed her live-in boyfriend at Pine Forest Apartments on Pinson road during a domestic dispute.

Police say Contravis Holman died Sunday afternoon after getting into an argument with his girlfriend, 29-year-old Ladiedra Judge. Neighbors at the apartment complex say domestic violence is nothing to take lightly.

Willie Roberts lives at Pine Forest Apartments where29-year-old Contravis Holman and Judge got into a deadly fight. He says he knew Holman and used to bring him to church.

"His family and I were really close," said Roberts. "A part of me goes out to both families and it's sad when ever you have a problem that comes down to this."

Albany Police say they responded to the aggravated assault just before 1:00 p.m.. Judge is charged for stabbing Holman in apartment K-7. EMS crews rushed him to the hospital where he died of wounds to his upper body.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 3% of male homicide victims were killed by their spouses between 1976 and 2005. Domestic violence counts for roughly 11% of all crimes in America.

"Unfortunately, it's something we can't control, but we ask people to take a step back and take a breather when it comes to domestic violence because it's something that's uncontrollable,"said APD Spokesperson, Phyllis Banks.

Neighbors say they hope this is the last homicide neighbors will experience at Pine Forest Apartments.

Police charged Ladiedra Judge with aggravated assault, murder, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

Police say domestic violence is a growing problem. If you find your self in a dangerous situation, call the 24-hour statewide hotline at 1-800-33-HAVEN (1-800-334-2836)
