Willie Henderson and girlfriend Shevelle Yolanda Lampkin, 50, had recently broken up after dating for five months, police said. When Henderson refused to leave her Dallas apartment one night, Lampkin called police. By the time officers arrived, Henderson was dead. “He ran into my knife,” she told police.
A grand jury declined to indict Lampkin on a murder charge and police said the physical evidence supported Lampkin's claim of self defense. Her attorney said that police found a threatening phone message from Henderson shortly before the killing and that Lampkin’s front door had been kicked in.
