Screaming could be heard by dispatchers -- screams from the woman being stabbed and screams from those watching.
From reading reports and speaking with officials, it was learned that this week's fatal stabbing in Annapolis was a violent event, possibly public. Emergency calls to 911 and radio transmissions released Wednesday paint the picture.
The screams of 29-year-old Ronnesha Simms brought neighbors outside to witness her boyfriend stab her several times. Desperate calls were made to 911, describing the incident to dispatchers.
"He's outside beating her real bad," an initial caller said.
The same caller soon came back to the phone and said, "Can you hear her screaming? He will not get off of her. ...He got a knife, they said. Oh my God, please! They said he got a knife."
The woman told dispatchers she no longer wanted to look out the window.
