A Boardman woman accused of fatally stabbing her live-in boyfriend after she found him naked with another woman was indicted on a murder charge.

Tequila M. Haskins, 28, was indicted Thursday by a Mahoning County grand jury on the charge. She remains at the Mahoning County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

Haskins, of 812 Moyer Ave., told police she fatally stabbed Brian E. Tubbs, 28, on June 4 after she confronted Tubbs about him being in bed with a neighbor.

Haskins, a former employee of Hampton Woods Nursing Center in Poland, told police Tubbs “went after her” and she stabbed him, reports said.

According to a police report, Haskins stabbed Tubbs in the arm, chest and throat. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he later died.

Reports said when officers arrived, Haskins yelled “I stabbed him and he’s not breathing.” Officers noted Haskins’ hands were covered in blood.

Crime scene investigators found Tubbs in a second-floor bedroom wearing only a tank top covered in blood, and there was blood on the floor and walls. Officers found a bloody knife in an adjacent bedroom, which reports said Haskins told officers she used to stab Tubbs.

Reports said a family member took custody of Haskins’ two children, who were a few apartments away from the home at the time of the stabbing.
