One night Stacey came back to the apartment and found Steve stabbing Michelle in her chest over and over yelling, “how could you do this to me Michelle, I love you with all my heart, how could you.” Steve was visibly drunk. Stacey walked over to her desk drawer and pulled out a gun and stated, “I have had enough of you Steve.” Stacey shot Steve straight in the heart and he died. Moments later Michelle got to her feet and took the knife Steve was stabbing her with and stabbed Stacey in the chest several times yelling, “I loved him, how dare you.” Both Michelle and Stacey survived their wounds.
