**UPDATE--Stewart's roommate, 18-year old Shanterrica Madden was arrested and charged with 1st degree murder for this.**

Middle Tennessee State University basketball player Tina Stewart was stabbed to death at an off-campus apartment in Murfreesboro. Local police have two people in custody and were searching a third.

Stewart had multiple wounds when authorities found her, Murfreesboro Police spokesman Kyle Evans said as local authorities had been called to the apartment because of a disturbance. Evans said officers took a man and a woman into custody outside the apartment before finding Stewart inside.

The junior guard from Memphis was taken to Middle Tennessee Medical Center and was pronounced dead.

Counselors have been alerted to help on campus.

The Blue Raiders (23-6) are the No. 1 seed from the East and scheduled to start play in the Sun Belt Conference tournament this weekend against either FAU or Arkansas State in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
