Port Orange police said a woman admitted to killing her partner, saying “It’s me. I’m the bad person.”
The suspect, 55-year-old Brenda Thomas, has no prior record, but the judge decided to keep her locked up behind bars without bond.
Police said Thomas got into an argument with her 61-year-old partner, John Redshaw, and stabbed him inside their home Wednesday night. He died about an hour later at the hospital.
According to the police report, Thomas said they went out drinking and got into a fight and that Redshaw tried to choke her.
Police said the only mark on her was a cut on her finger and that one of Redshaw’s arms is paralyzed.
If convicted, Thomas could spend the rest of her life in prison.
