WILMINGTON (DE): A family who lost one of their own to Wilmington violence can finally see a glimmer of hope – and are thankful to the hard work of a Wilmington Police Detective who brought their loved one’s killer to justice.
That loved one was 25-year-old Tierra Herring and police say her life was taken from her on October 29, 2020 just before 12:00 a.m.
Police arrived in the 200 block of West 4th Street in reference to a stabbing that had occurred. Laying on the ground, they found 25-year-old Tierra Herring suffering from stab wounds.
She was treated at the scene by EMS and New Castle County Paramedics and then transported to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Back at the crime scene, investigators began their work, interviewing any witnesses, taking photos, and placed evidence markers on the ground.
A Wilmington Police Detective who was working the case worked diligently and identified 22-year-old Alazhia Wilson as a suspect. It’s not known how Wilson became a suspect, but arrest warrants were obtained, and Wilson was taken into custody by the US Marshals Service Task Force on November 11.
Wilson was charged with Murder (First Degree) and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony. She was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 11 and committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $1,050,000 cash-only bail.
