A man was charged with murder after stabbing a woman in her Lake Highlands apartment.

The Dallas Police Department responded to a major disturbance call about 8:43 a.m. Wednesday at 9340 Skillman St. Officers found 38-year-old Latrecia Neshea Nelson laying on her bedroom floor. She was unresponsive and suffering from several stab wounds, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.

Nelson was pronounced dead at the scene, police say.

After a brief investigation, police determined 34-year-old Kenneth Ray Walker was the suspect. Walker later turned himself in and admitted that he stabbed Nelson. He was taken to Dallas County Lew Sterrett Jail and charged with murder.

Nelson and Walker were “involved in a dating relationship and have a child together,” according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
