UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — An attorney for a Maryland college student accused of stabbing a roommate to death after they argued about music says his client was acting in self-defense.

An attorney for Alexis Simpson says the stabbing was a tragic accident. Prosecutors disagree, saying Simpson had made a choice to end Dominique Frazier's life last week.

A judge ordered Simpson, 19-year-old Bowie State University student, held without bond Monday.

Court documents say Simpson stabbed Frazier inside their dormitory-style apartment after the two women argued about music playing from an iPod.

A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 14.
