The woman who accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape back in 2006, could possibly be facing murder charges. Crystal Mangum, 32 stabbed her live-in boyfriend Reginald Daye, 46, during an argument on April 3rd. Reginald died last week as a result of those injuries.
According to Durham, N.C., police, Mangum stabbed him in the torso with a kitchen knife. He was taken to Duke University Hospital and treated for serious injuries. "More than likely, we will be upgrading the charge to murder," Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez Sr. told The Herald Sun of Durham Wednesday.
During a 911 call, a man requesting an ambulance to the residence said Mangum was the attacker. "I told him she was trouble from the very beginning," the man said. Mangum is currently being held in jail on a $300,000 bond and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
Mangum was arrested and charged with attempted murder, arson and child abuse last year after an altercation with her previous boyfriend Milton Walker. Crystal attacked Walker and set his clothes on fire in the bathtub while three children were present. She also told Walker "that she was going to stab him in front of police officers. She was found guilty of three counts of child abuse, injury to personal property and resisting a public officer. She was sentenced to 88 days in jail, which she had already served while awaiting trial.
This chick is obviously a loose cannon. Why the judge in her previous case only gave her an 88 day sentence is beyond me. Now as a result, another man has lost his life. Hopefully, the judge in this case won't be so lenient.
