Cantonment Woman Faces Up To Life In Prison For Stabbing Death Of Her Boyfriend

November 23, 2021

A Cantonment woman pleaded no contest Monday for the 2019 stabbing death of her boyfriend.

Ja’Quoia XiaXiana Collins, now 27, entered the plea on a charge of second degree murder with a weapon.

She allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the chest outside the Wild Oak Farms Apartments in the 800 block of North Highway 29 shortly before midnight on July 6, 2019. Deputies responded to apartments at 11:39 p.m. where they found victim Quartez McShane unresponsive on the ground near the driver’s side door of a blue Mitsubishi Gallant parked in the entrance of the apartment complex. He had been stabbed in the center of his chest with a knife. McShane was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital where he was pronounced deceased less than an hour later.

Collins will be sentenced in December. She faced up to life in prison.

    I live very close to where this happened. And from what I’ve seen the police were there many many times before this incident occurred. Belief is that she was a victim of abuse and sometimes you have just had enough you don’t think right but you act in order to make it stop. Very sad for the children. I don’t believe she should get life. I believe her sentence has been served. My opinion. my opinion only. I’m sure

    You have to be one screwed up individual to intentionally kill another human being which is exactly what she did. There is no excuse. I still pray for both families and the innocent children. The children are the ones who are actually facing life. Bless their hearts.

    At age 27 she most likely has already several children. Hope that guy was worth giving them up for.
