Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - New information has been released in connection with a Lubbock homicide that happened Saturday night.

Denisha Rochell Johnson remains behind bars after she is suspected to have fatally stabbed 24-year-old Bobby Jermaine Butler during an argument at the Stonehollow Apartments off of East Cornell Street. Butler later died at University Medical Center.

"I seen a girl stab him with a long butcher knife, and I mean she didn't show remorse for doing it," says Takesha Twitty who witnessed the stabbing. "She meant to do it."

Investigators say Johnson had been dating one of Butler's relatives and they were arguing over family matters.

NewsChannel 11 has learned that this is not her first brush with violence. Johnson, who just turned 18 on Thursday, also has a prior conviction for domestic violence around Valentines day in 2009.
