Woman arrested for killing fiance after he invited his Ex to their wedding

The woman told police he had fallen on the knife after a fight at their home

Souza told cops the groom wanted to invite a woman he once had an affair with, causing Souza to believe the relationship was ongoing.

When police arrived, they discovered Watkins unresponsive on the kitchen floor and a bloody steak knife on the table. The pair had been at a bar to celebrate their upcoming wedding in Las Vegas, when they began fighting over the guest list.

Fallen on knife

Souza — who was reportedly in the process of divorcing another man while planning her wedding to Watkins — said they had been engaged since late June.

She originally told cops he had fallen on the knife after a row at their home. Police however, didn’t find any signs of a possible break-in.

The would-be bride then speculated Watkins may have stabbed himself in the chest after their fight, court records stated. In her third account, Souza accused her fiancé of cheating with several women.

Steak knife

She then claimed Watkins became violent and they continued trading insults in the kitchen where Watkins grabbed the steak knife and threatened her.

She then reportedly backtracked on her statement about Watkins threatening her but said Watkins fell on top of the knife when she pushed him to get away.

Souza told investigators she called 911 and administered CPR until police arrived. She was arrested and is expected to return to court on August 1.
