The Baltimore Polytechnic Institute graduate was fatally stabbed after a fight at an off-campus house party, police said. Officers report that law enforcement arrived to the scene at about 1:30 a.m. to find Kortneigh McCoy bleeding to death in the street outside the house from a wound to the head. She was declared dead at Western Maryland Hospital, police reported.
Shanee Liggins, a 23-year-old senior business major from Waldorf, was charged with both first- and second-degree murder. Liggins is being held without bail during a hearing Monday at the Allegany District Courthouse in Cumberland. Liggins’ attorney, public defender James Malone, told the judge that he would ask for a new bail hearing.
University officials said the party took place at Liggins’ home on Maple Street in Frostburg.
A fight started in the kitchen during the party. Liggins was asked to take the fight outside, according to witnesses, and that is when, the witnesses told police, she and McCoy crossed paths and began fighting. One witness said she saw McCoy and the suspect “swing at each other at the same time.”
