Update: A Thursday preliminary hearing in Nashville found enough evidence to have Christopher McLawhon, 23, bound over to a grand jury. He remains in jail in Davidson County with bail set at 750K.
Tiffany Ferguson was a Loretto native, a 2015 graduate of the University of North Alabama, and a Registered Nurse working in Nashville. Now she’s become a statistic. Authorities say that last week a burglar randomly attempted entry into several condos where Ferguson lived with a roommate until he found her door unlocked. It was during his second trip into the apartment that the young nurse awakened. Police say Christopher Drew McLawhorn fatally stabbed the 23 year old Ferguson when she confronted him.
McLawhorn is currently being held in the Davidson County Jail. He also faces charges in North Carolina for which he may be subject to extradition.
