NORCROSS — Police have charged a Norcross woman with murder in the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend Sunday.

A heated domestic dispute after 3 a.m. between Tyress Malcome, 32, of Norcross, and his girlfriend, Tiquonda Campbell, 30, turned violent at the Highland Lake Apartments on Ashley Lakes Drive near Norcross.

Campbell is accused of retrieving a knife from the kitchen during the argument and stabbing Malcome. Wounded, Malcome was driven by a friend to a Doraville home on Beechwood Avenue, where the stabbing was reported to police.

“He informed officers that his girlfriend ... stabbed him in Norcross,” said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter.

Malcome was transported to Atlanta Medical Center where he was pronounced dead on arrival, Ritter said.

Investigators developed probable cause to arrest Campbell, charging her with felony murder and aggravated assault. The investigation continues, Ritter said.
