Here’s more from the MadameNoire report about Murrell-French’s backstory:

Back in April 2019, the now-incarcerated woman was sentenced to 7 years on one count of first-degree assault after stabbing a 17-year-old girl during an altercation that occurred at a gas station in St. Paul, Minnesota, according to Twin Cities Pioneer Press. The victim suffered life-threatening injuries after the incident including a “collapsed lung and injuries to her jugular,” in addition to nerve damage. The outlet noted that Murrell-French had racked up nine theft charges in the months prior to her assault case, leaving the judge no choice but to hit the then 19-year-old with a lengthy prison sentence.
