The Collier County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal stabbing on Marco Island. A 24-year-old woman was arrested and charged with the crime early Tuesday, Dec. 2.
Lisa Troemner of Marco Island was booked into the Collier County jail Tuesday morning on a charge of second-degree murder in connection with the death of 30-year-old Trevor Smith, her live-in boyfriend. The stabbing is believed to have happened during an argument the two were having inside their condominium early Tuesday.
The Marco Island Police Department requested the Collier County Sheriff’s Office’s assistance in the investigation. CCSO and MIPD have a longstandingpartnership and mutual aid agreement.
CCSO detectives gave this account:
Troemner walked into the 7-Eleven store at 600 Bald Eagle Drive on Marco covered in blood shortly before 2 AM. She told a clerk that she killed someone. Police quickly responded and met with Troemner, who directed them to the condominium she shared with Smith at 886 Park Ave. #501 in The Roman Plaza. Once inside the condo, officers found Smith deceased in the bedroom.
Detectives said Troemner and Smith had been arguing for several hours inside the condo. While they were in the bedroom, she armed herself with a knife and fatally stabbed Smith.
The joint investigation between CCSO and MIPD continues.
