Charlotte mother of two, Aliyah Terry, who was on a mission to help women escape domestic violence by co-authoring the book ‘The Queen Xperience’, has allegedly been fatally stabbed by her boyfriend.
Sadly, the 35-year-old won’t be able to see how her writing will help others after police said she was found stabbed in her Charlotte home on July 2. Medic transported Aliyah to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department allege Aliyah was killed by her live-in boyfriend, Isaih Henderson III.
Reportedly, hours before she was killed, police were called to Aliyah’s home after a verbal dispute between her and Henderson. Henderson, 32, fled before officers arrived.
After turning himself into police on July 4, Henderson has been charged with Aliyah’s murder and is reportedly in custody without bail. He has yet to enter a plea.
Aliyah’s untimely death comes days before her book, recalling her experiences with domestic violence, became available for pre-order online on Amazon.
