TAMPA -

An active-duty airman serving at MacDill Air Force Base stabbed her boyfriend to death in the St. Petersburg apartment they shared, police say.

At around 5:30 a.m., officers responded to 10901 NE Brighton Bay Blvd, the Coves of Brighton Bay Apartment complex, after receiving a 9-1-1 call from 22-year-old Rashida Williams. She called to say she had just stabbed her boyfriend, police said.

Wayne Charles-Marion Drummer, 23, was found dead inside the apartment with a stab wound to the chest, police said. He is a civilian, according to a MacDill spokeswoman.

Prior to the stabbing, Williams and Drummer were arguing over money, police said,

The knife used by Williams was found in the kitchen sink, police said.

Drummer, who was from Chicago, had moved in with Williams about a week ago, police said. Williams previously lived in the Chicago area, according to records.

Williams is an airman first class and is assigned to the 6th Medical Group at MacDill, according to Capt. Regina Gillis, spokeswoman for the 6th Air Mobility Wing. Military investigators will conduct their own follow-up investigation, police said.

Williams has been interviewed by detectives, was charged with 2nd degree murder, and is being held in a Pinellas County jail with no bail.
