NASHVILLE (WSMV) - A suspect has been arrested in an April incident where a dispute at a North Nashville funeral home led to a stabbing.

According to arrest records, 30-year-old Talisa Anndrell Rollins is facing multiple charges including attempted first degree murder, five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, vandalism, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault with a motor vehicle/reckless endangerment, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The dispute occurred at Terrell Broady Funeral Home on Clarksville Pike on Monday, April 22 and led to the non-critical stabbing of the deceased’s sister.

Rollins and Angel Chatman, 28, the ex-girlfriend of the deceased, were in a group of persons that arrived at the funeral home for visitation at 1 p.m. They were told by family members that they were not welcome there.

The parties began to argue, during which Angel Chatman was reported to have pulled a knife and cut the sister of the deceased on her back.

Rollins is alleged to have pulled a pistol and threatened two family members.

They left the building and got into Angel Chatman’s Infiniti SUV. Angel Chatman put the vehicle in reverse and struck a pickup truck that was pulling into the funeral home parking lot.

The passenger in the pickup truck, the deceased’s brother, got out of the truck. Angel Chatman was reported to have put the SUV in reverse and pinned the brother between her vehicle and the truck. The deceased’s brother and sister were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment and released.

Angel Chatman surrendered the same day. Travonda Chatman, Angel’s sister, was originally identified as a suspect, but charges were later dropped when it was determined she did not participate in the violence.

Rollins was booked into Hill Detention Center. Bond was set at $88,000.
