Woman charged in boyfriend’s stabbing death

A woman is charged with murder after a domestic dispute ended with the stabbing death of her boyfriend, Youngstown police reported.

Jessica Walker, 23, of 1423 Maplewood Court, told police she stabbed Shawn Meadows, 26, after he punched and choked her during an argument, police reported. The stabbing happened about 11:30 a.m. Sunday. Walker was taken to the hospital, then arrested about 4:30 p.m., police said.

Walker told police she was cooking for her 4-year-old son, and he did not want to eat. Meadows walked in and insisted that the child eat.

Walker told police she advised Meadows that the boy didn’t have to eat, that it was her house and if he didn’t like, it he could leave.

That’s when Meadows attacked her, she said, and forced her head into a wall. Police said she had a large lump on her forehead.

Walker told police she ran upstairs to get her phone, and Meadows followed her. She said he punched and choked her again.

Walker told police she stabbed Meadows twice and ran to a friend’s house.

The friend called police, the report indicates.

An officer who went into the residence saw Meadows curled into a fetal position by the stairs.

Walker was taken to the Mahoning County Jail pending a court appearance today.

How about this... stop associating with idiotic people. Stop letting them come into your house where you end up having to stab and kill them because of an argument that 95% of the population has on a weekly basis... I don't know, just a thought...

So crimson is actually blaming the abuse victim? Hate to tell you but some people can not be dealt with normally. What seems trivial to you is not to an abuser. All it takes is a wrong look. So please think about that before you blame a victim again.

It's pretty clear she went upstairs to get more than the phone. Women beaters are the biggest cowards in the world! Well this one won't beat another women.

She is lying out her teeth. She using that to get a shorter sentence you all believe everything. She was crazy enough to kill someone wouldn't that make her crazy enough to make it look like he abused her? She is full of it. And whoever believes her is dumb. It's simple as that .

If she has bruises on her and he has stab wounds that sort of tells the tale.

Single moms have to be careful who they allow around their children. Too many times these guys don't know how to be dads.

No but I know the truth and I know who he is/was and I know his b.m so why would he magically hit her if he never hit his b.m? He wouldn't do that. She knew who he was before he came to her house and if he was a abuser then why let him in. I've known sick people to harm themselves to look as if they are the innocent ones.

Oh here we go with the baby mama drama. He still loved you? Then why was he in her house and not yours? The police said she had bruises and a lump on her forehead. I don't know what idiots you know that would do that tp themselves but now days you say domestic they get taken away. Not like it was 30 yrs ago when I got told they have to see him hit you. And o was covered in bruises. So I find it unlikely this man was a "good boy"puleeeeeeeeze

For all those people out there that are paying high property taxes for the Youngstown School System, take a good look at your money well spent. CantStandYa you have a very valid point, a translator would be required to understand this gibberish.

To "FCB"-
What obligation did the woman have to the deceased... Were they boyfriend / girlfirend, husband / wife, or just friends...? Why do you assume that she has to play the role of victim for her whole life? Didn't she have the ability to terminate the relationship or have the deceased removed from the house... Are you telling me that she had no ability to keep this guy away from her child? Was he the father...?

Trust me, I could care less that she killed him... I am sure he deserved it... It just strikes me as odd that the majority of the population can negotiate issues of this nature by excerising some control and common sense, but not when you live a lifestyle that dictates otherwise......

Wow....I know my pronunciation and grammar is not that great, but the comments here, I don't feel as bad! Did they learn anything in school? Pitiful.

Drama, drama, drama. Take it to the Jerry Springer show. Waiting now for the drama queens to come on and stick up for Jessica, this should get interesting.

Crimson, you have obviously never been in an abusive relationship for you to think it is all that simple.

If she had time and space to run upstairs and grab a knife then why didn't she have time and space to run out the door and/or call the police?

It is not within the rights of this young woman to summarily execute a man for physically assaulting her.

The women here that make excuses for her are simple hate-filled misandrists that secretly wish all men were dead, right dumb421?

I knew Shawn and his sister Shannon. Both losers. I'm sure he got what he deserved. He wasnt a nice guy. He was a drug dealer and was involved in many shootings, robberies and breakin's city wide. He threatened to take my life over something he stole from me. I'm personally glad he's gone. I'll sleep better tonight. I guess he won't be around to make that happen. :-)
