MURFREESBORO (AP) — The sister of a slain Middle Tennessee State basketball player says she hopes the defendant in the case spends the rest of her life behind bars.

Monika Jones, sister of Tina Stewart, commented to The Daily News Journal after the arraignment Wednesday for Shanterrica Madden. She is accused of stabbing Stewart to death at their off-campus apartment March 2 during an argument.

Madden's trial was tentatively scheduled for next Jan. 31.

Her attorney, Joe Brandon Jr., has said Madden acted in self-defense.
