WILLIAMSBURG — A Williamsburg resident has been charged with second-degree murder after fatally stabbing a 71-year-old woman at Walgreens on Richmond Rd. Friday night.

On Friday, Nov. 12, at approximately 6 p.m., officers from the City of Williamsburg Police Department (WPD) responded to the 1300 block of Richmond Rd. after a reported stabbing incident.

Officers found the victim, a 71-year-old woman, suffering from stab wounds. The victim was transported to Riverside Doctors’ Hospital Williamsburg with life-threatening injuries and later died.

According to WPD, the victim appeared to arrive at Walgreens separately from the suspect, 35-year-old LaTeisha Meekins of Williamsburg.

Witnesses said that the two women met outside the store and spoke for a few moments prior to the stabbing.

Investigators arrested Meekins late last night (Nov. 12) and charged her with second-degree murder.

Meekins is being held at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail without bond.

WPD said that the motive for the attack is unclear at this time, but that it does not believe that there is an ongoing threat to the public.

The victim’s identity is currently being withheld as the incident remains under investigation by the WPD’s Criminal Investigations Bureau.

Anyone with any information regarding this case is encouraged to call WPD at (757) 220-2331. Tips can also be made through the Crime Line at (888) LOCK-U-UP (562-5887) or through the Peninsula Crime Stoppers’ website,
