According to the DA’s office, on May 30, Berry was with a group of friends at a Memphis residence when she and the victim got into an argument.

Witnesses reportedly told investigators that Berry grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the victim several times in the neck. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.
