TRENTON — A Trenton woman was charged with murder in the May death of a man found in bleeding in the street with multiple stab wounds, authorities said.
Charlotte Carman, 38, was arrested and charged with murder, felony murder, robbery, criminal mischief and weapons charges in the May 31 stabbing death of Paris France Way, 33, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.
Way was stabbed several times in the chest in the area of Sherman and St. Joes avenues shortly before 2 a.m. He was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, prosecutors said.
An investigation by the Mercer County Homicide Task Force found that Carmen and Way arrived in a Hyundai Sonata on Sherman Avenue shortly before the murder, prosecutors said.
The two became involved in an argument, which turned physical. Carman slashed each of the tires on the car and then stabbed Way in the chest. Carman also took $180 from Way’s pocket and his cell phone before fleeing, prosecutors said.
Carman was arrested in New Brunswick early Friday evening by members of the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office and the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force. She is being held at the Mercer County jail, Hopewell Township, in lieu of $770,000 bail, prosecutors said.
