(Scroll down for video) A bride’s big day ended in tragedy when her caterer was stabbed to death over a few chairs.
36-year-old Tyonne Domonique Johns, who is also known to many as chef Tyonne, was asked to cater an outdoor wedding at a park in Virginia, and she agreed.
The wedding was held at the Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Chantilly. At the end the event, Johns cleaned up the area.
Meanwhile, government employee Kempton Bonds, 19, who was waiting to lock up the park, noticed Johns placing folding chairs, which he believed belonged to the park, into her truck.
Bonds confronted Johns, and the two got into an argument over the ownership of the chairs.
Police are still trying to figure out what happened next and what prompted Bonds to pull out a three-inch folding knife and stab the woman to death.
Bonds was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He was fired from the park, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Friend’s of chef Tyonne, who were at the wedding, are calling the murder a hate crime, which was motivated because the chef was a lesbian.
However, Nikolas Martin, a friend of Bonds, said that this “was totally out of character for Bonds” and he is asking people not to jump to conclusions.
