Shardonnae Pruitt, Chicago Woman, Charged With Fatally Stabbing Boyfriend

A Chicago woman previously convicted of stabbing another woman with a box cutter in a confrontation over a salad plate at a Chuck E. Cheese is now facing murder charges.

Shardonnae Pruitt, 20, was charged with first-degree murder after she allegedly stabbed 22-year-old Kahlin Holloway in the chest in the 9600 block of South Merrion Avenue, where she lived, about 5 p.m. on Sunday, DNAinfo Chicago reports.

Holloway was pronounced dead Sunday evening at Advocate Trinity Hospital.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Holloway had come to Pruitt's home on Sunday to confront her about postings she had made about him on social media. Prosecutors say the two proceeded to argue and, at one point, Pruitt stabbed Holloway in the chest with a kitchen knife.

Pruitt has been ordered held in lieu of $750,000 bail, the Sun-Times reports.

In the September 2012 incident at a Chuck E. Cheese where Pruitt worked on the city's Southwest Side, police said she took a 40-year-old man's plate away, and he responded by throwing his utensils on the floor and insisting on seeing a manager to make a formal complaint.

When the manager left, Pruitt allegedly threatened the offended diner and stabbed the 25-year-old woman with him. The woman was taken to a hospital and released and opted not to press felony charges, according to the Tribune.
