|$275,000 bond set for accused in murder of Alex Promise Jr.|
Bond for 19-year-old Crystal M. Gordon of 114 Brook Street, Ferriday -- accused of fatality stabbing her boyfriend with a kitchen knife on Sunday -- was set at $275,000 this morning (Wednesday) by Judge Leo Boothe in Seventh Judicial District Court.
According to evidence provided during the magistration of Gordon by Chief Investigator Bobby Sheppard, Gordon admitted to Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office investigator Jack Fletcher that she stabbed 27-year-old Alex Promise Jr., but said she did so in self-defense.
Promise Jr., was stabbed one time in the chest. He was transported to Riverland Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Sheppard said information obtained from Gordon revealed that the couple was in the process of breaking up and had an altercation earlier in the day. Gordon reportedly agreed to drive Promise Jr. to a location in Ferriday, but said she armed herself with a knife because she feared Promise Jr.
Sheppard said Gordon told investigators that the two had fought several times during their relationship and when Gordon stopped in front of her grandmother's home at 100 Woodmount St., Ridgecrest, he struck her again.
Gordon told police when she attempted to exit the car at her grandmother's that Promise Jr. grabbed her and in self-defense she stabbed him.
"She had a bruise of the eye and in the chest area," Sheppard said of Gordon.
When officers arrived at the scene, Promise had "fallen out of the car to the roadway."
Boothe named Derrick Carson of the Indigent Defender Board to represent Gordon, who told the judge she was unemployed but received $647 per month from her father.
The knife believed used in the altercation was found in mud behind her grandmother's house.
In addition to the second degree murder charge, Gordon was also booked for failure to appear for a previous court hearing.
The case is still under investigation.
