Caption + Jerwarren Jackson
A woman accused of fatally stabbing a man earlier this week in the Stratmoor Hills area said the two had been fighting over her affair with another man, according to court records.
Ta Tyana King, 22, told El Paso County sheriff’s deputies her live in boyfriend, Jerwarren Donterious Jackson, 23, punched her in the face after she told him she’d slept with another man. King whose mouth appeared bloodied in her booking mugshot retaliated by stabbing him, she said, but other details in her story changed later, records showed.

King initially said she used a piece of glass from a broken mirror to stab Jackson but later admitted to using a knife. A bloody knife and broken glass were found in her apartment, and surveillance video outside the apartment shows her with a knife in hand as she followed Jackson out of the complex, records said.
When Jackson fell to the ground clutching his abdomen, she reportedly kicked him and told him she “hoped he died.” Jackson was transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery, but he died about three hours later, records said.
