Responding officers arrived at Wilson's apartment just after 4 a.m. and found her in her kitchen and Doughty "covered in blood," according to charging documents. Medical examiners determined Wilson's stab wound near her left armpit was not self-inflicted.

Investigators found text messages about the breakup in which Wilson asked Doughty asked for her keys back. 

"The text messages paint a very disturbing picture," police wrote. "The victim was breaking up with Ms. Doughty and wanted her keys back. The victim repeated this comment over and over in the text messages for Ms. Doughty to leave her alone and to meet the next day to get the keys back."
