Woman charged in fatal stabbing that killed student at Lincoln University


Authorities in Chester County arrested a woman who fatally stabbed a 21-year-old student at Lincoln University on February 16.

Nydira Smith was charged with fatally stabbing Jawine Evans, 21, on the side of his neck at a dormitory hall on campus, according to Fox29. The suspect also stabbed two other students — Eric Dickerson, 22, and Clifton Walker, 22.

Smith was the sister of a student at Lincoln University who was involved in the fight with all three students stabbed.

Footage of the incident was obtained by detectives.

“We believe it was premeditated. She took an hour and a half to drive from her home in West Mount Airy out to Lincoln University with a knife to join in a fight with the intent to kill,” said Chester County District Attorney, Deb Ryan.
