Woman who claimed self defense in fatal stabbing near Bullitt County rest stop now charged with murder

6-25-15 Kentucky:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A California woman told investigators she fatally stabbed a man in self defense near a Bullitt County rest stop last week, but police now say it was murder.

Shepherdsville police held a press conference Thursday morning to discuss the case.

Nicole Skyberg, 26 is accused of stabbing 45-year-old Aaron Jerrell on Saturday. Officers found Jerrell's body on an exit ramp near a rest stop along Interstate 65.

Police have confirmed that Jerrell, who is from Alabama, was a registered sex offender.

Police say Skyberg, who has been a person of interest from the start, was a passenger in the car with Jerrell.

Investigators initially told WDRB that Skyberg may have stabbed Jerrell in self defense. No charges were filed against her after she was interviewed over the weekend, but police say that has since changed.

"The investigation continued," said Officer Ken Bernadi. "We talked to more witnesses, examined more physical evidence, and after meeting with the Commonwealth Attorney's office, an arrest warrant obtained."

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available. ..Source.. by Danielle Lama
