Trial starts in case of slain Bowie State student

Posted: Updated:

Opening statements are expected in the trial of a former Bowie State University student charged with killing her roommate.

Alexis Simpson is standing trial in Prince George's County on Tuesday in the September 2011 slaying of Dominique Frazier, her roommate at Bowie State.

Authorities say Simpson stabbed Frazier during an argument over loud music that Frazier was playing as the women and other students prepared for a school-sponsored comedy show.

Police say Simpson fled the campus after the stabbing but later turned herself in.

Simpson is charged with murder and also faces a charge of carrying a deadly weapon.
