Bowie State Student Charged with Murder of Roommate Released on Bond
]Bowie State University student Alexis Simpson is free on bond until a trial in August for the murder of her roommate Dominique Frazier last September. Simpson, 19, will be on house arrest until the trial.
“I think the judge recognized you’ve got a college student with no real record,” Miss Simpson’s attorney, Christopher Griffiths, said. “She certainly is not a threat to the community or to anyone.”
During an April 5 hearing, Judge Sean D. Wallace granted Miss Simpson a $250,000 bond, according to court records. She was released from the Prince George’s County jail April 10, said John Erzen, spokesman for the county’s State’s Attorney’s Office. (Washington Informer)
Simpson admitted to stabbing Frazier in the neck after an altercation in which she said she felt threatened her. Simpson had been in jail since the murder.
