Another Murder, This Time A Domestic Stabbing, Again Gets SB Worldwide Attention

Is Nakasia James a hotblooded murderess? Or was she acting in self defense? That has yet to be determined. San Bernardino Police investigators are still searching for the 18-year-old woman after she admittedly stabbed her boyfriend, 21-year-old Dorian Powell, to death early Monday morning and then posted about it on Facebook.
An all points bulletin has been issued for James, who remains at large.
The circumstances of the killing, which took place inside an apartment in the 2000 block of North Central Avenue in the county seat, are up for debate.
What is known about the unfortunate twist of events comes primarily from James herself. A post on her Facebook page gave this account: “Just goin tell ya nw b4 I get caught, last night my ex was drunk off ej&& was fighn me, hit mee in the face and he was really fightn and I gt the knife and stabbd him and ddnt think I would hurt him BT I did he died and I’m on the run pigs lookin for me BT god knows I didn’t mean to stab him I was mad AF he socked me in my eyes and just picked sumthin up. BT sorryy lord hopefully u forgive me! And sorry Dorian Powell rip [entire passage sic]”
Later on Monday, James also posted: “Ilove always love dorian brent tyrome powell [sic].”
When authorities arrived at the apartment, James was gone. Powell was pronounced dead at the scene. His was San Bernardino’s third homicide of the year.
James is now wanted on suspicion of murder. At the same time, police have acknowledged that there is evidence that prior to Powell’s death the couple had been involved in a domestic altercation which had turned violent. In both the American and foreign press, there has been speculation that James’ stabbing of Powell was or may have been a justifiable homicide.
