A woman was found guilty Wednesday in the stabbing death of another woman at a downtown Minneapolis transit station in June.
Ivory Andis, 21, was found provisionally guilty of fatally stabbing Dargenella Wade, 44, at the transit station and parking ramp at 101 N. 9th St. In the stipulated-facts trial, which was held last Friday, lawyers agreed on the facts presented, but argued about whether those facts proved that Andis was guilty of the charge. At her April 11 sentencing, Hennepin County Judge Daniel Mabley will pronounce Andis guilty, barring any change of circumstance.
According to the criminal complaint, police responded to a call early on June 25 about a fight with weapons. They found Wade bleeding from numerous stab wounds. She died about a half-hour later at Hennepin County Medical Center.
Andis and Wade had been fighting earlier in the morning, and Wade sprayed a chemical irritant on Andis and her boyfriend, Tylor Jorgensen, 22. Eventually, Wade left and went to the transit station. A witness then saw Andis break a bottle. However, Jorgensen stopped her and gave her a knife, and Andis continued to the station and stabbed Wade.
Jorgensen is scheduled for trial on April 11, also on charges of second-degree murder.
