Nashville crime report: North Carolina man linked to deadly nurse stabbing

WILSON, N.C. (WNCN) – The family of a Wilson County man says they’re in shock after the 24-year-old has been linked to a deadly stabbing of a nurse in Nashville, Tennessee.

Twenty-three-year-old Tiffany Ferguson was stabbed multiple times in her Nashville condo during the early hours of February 28. Ferguson died a short time later at the hospital after her roommate called 911.

On Wednesday, more than a week after the killing, Nashville police charged Christopher McLawhorn with criminal homicide and especially aggravated burglary in Ferguson’s death. Police say evidence and witness statements have led them to charge McLawhorn with stabbing Ferguson multiple times while burglarizing her apartment.

McLawhorn is from Sims, a small town in Wilson County, according to his family. McLawhorn’s father tells CBS North Carolina his son has been going back and forth between Nashville and Wilson County the past few years.
