A former professional wrestler whose Facebook page showed a photo of a bloody body part Wednesday evening faces a murder charge in the stabbing death of a woman at a Tampa apartment complex, authorities said.
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s officials said Brian McGhee, 29, will be charged with first-degree murder. He was booked into the Pasco County Jail Thursday morning after being treated at a Tampa hospital for injuries received in a car crash when fleeing from deputies late Wednesday. He went by the wrestling monikers “The Future” Donovan Roddick and DT Porter.
The victim was identified as 25-year-old Bianca McGaughey.
According to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Carter, deputies were called to an apartment complex around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. There, they found a woman who had been stabbed multiple times in the neck and torso lying on a sidewalk. She died at the scene.
Detectives said McGhee and McGaughey had dated previously. They broke up a year ago, but continued contact with each other.
