Witness: Pa. bride made threats before groom killed
ALLENTOWN, Pa. - September 14, 2012 (WPVI) -- A Pennsylvania woman charged with fatally stabbing her fiance hours before they were set to be married allegedly killed the man after he raised his hands palms-up and asked her, "is this what you really want to do?"
Na Cola Franklin was bound over for trial on a criminal homicide charge Thursday after a Lehigh County district judge heard testimony describing the Aug. 11 death of Billy Brewster.
Brewster's cousin Nakia Kali says Franklin threatened to stab him and Brewster's 13-year-old son when they tried to calm her down. He says Franklin then stabbed her husband-to-be in the heart with a kitchen knife at their Whitehall Township apartment.
Franklin's attorney says his client was in an abusive relationship and Brewster was trying to leave with their nine-month-old baby.
