Akron police said Paul stabbed Sara Stubbs, 24, to death inside a home in the 1100 block of Nome Ave. on Jan. 13, 2021.

Stubbs was able to tell officers who attacked her before she died and Paul was stopped as she was trying to flee the scene, said police.

Paul’s 17-year-old estranged daughter was in the home at the time of the murder.

The Summit County Medical Examiner said Stubbs was stabbed about 15 times.

Paul has been locked up at the Summit County Justice Center since her arrest.
