Woman stabbed after refusing to date man

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man is in jail Sunday afternoon, charged with stabbing a woman after she refused to date him.

Memphis police say Mario Walls stabbed a woman he had feelings for after she refused to make their relationship official.

Regional Medical Center says the woman is doing much better and is in good condition despite getting stabbed in the neck and stomach several times.

When the victim's daughter called Walls around 2:30 a.m. to inquire about her mother's whereabouts, Walls reportedly told her, "I killed her, I killed your mother."

Walls is in jail on a $1 million bond. He's scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.
