Marcia Jadonna Burchett, 28, was indicted Wednesday for murder in connection with a stabbing in June 2018 in Killeen that left another woman dead.

Grand jurors also handed up an indictment against Burchett charging injury to a child in an unrelated case.

She remains in the Bell County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $1.1 million.

Burchett, who’s 4-foot-11 and weighs 110 pounds, according to online jail records, was arrested in November on a warrant stemming from the June 9, 2018 attack at a home in the 2800 block of Phoenix Drive in Killeen that left Heather Mae Walker, 29, dead.

Officers responded to the address after receiving a 911 report of a possible cardiac victim was not breathing.

After they arrived, they discovered that Walker had been stabbed repeatedly.
