BALTIMORE (AP) — A renowned Baltimore dirt bike rider who appeared in an HBO drama about the city’s riding scene faces murder charges for the stabbing death of her partner on New Year’s Day, police said.
Lakeyria Doughty, known as “Wheelie Queen,” was charged with first- and second-degree murder for killing her 33-year-old partner, Tiffany Wilson, on Friday in West Baltimore, according to police.
“It was a domestic situation where cooler heads didn’t prevail,” said Detective Donny Moses, a Baltimore police spokesman. He said Doughty and Wilson were in a relationship and an argument ensued.
Doughty called 911 after the stabbing, but Wilson died at the scene nearly four hours into the new year, the Baltimore Sun reported. It was the city’s first homicide in 2021.
Doughty, 26, also faces various assault charges, including a felony, according to online court records.
Self-proclaimed “Wheelie Queen” for her stunts and skills, Doughty became a pioneer for breaking into the male-dominated dirt bike scene in Baltimore. She landed a role in the HBO film “Charm City Kings,” which premiered in the fall.
Online court records did not say whether Doughty has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
