Dymund Ellis, 19, of North Las Vegas, was “arrested and booked for a charge of murder with a deadly weapon” in connection with the stabbing death of her roommate, Jace Trevon Ernst, 25 after he kept talking over a show she was watching on television. Ellis and Ernst got into an argument on May 4 because Ernst kept talking over the dialogue of the television programt. It was not immediately clear which television show Ellis was watching. Ellis told her roommate to “shut up” and Ernst replied, “Shut up, Bitch” Ellis then went to the kitchen and retrieved a knife daring Ernst to “Call me a bitch again”. Ernst reportedly did and Ellis stabbed him in his chest “before returning the knife to her bedroom”. Ernst was transported to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The police report stated Ellis had threatened Ernst with a knife about 10 times the past couple of months but he was able to take it away from her. “She told me she has anger problems and she just got extremely upset tonight,” an officer wrote in the police report.
