SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Emotions ran high at a bond hearing Sunday for a suspect charged with murder.

Charvix Wright, 38, appeared before a judge charged with murder.

Spartanburg Police said they found a woman shot at a home on Baltimore Street, Saturday afternoon.

The coroner said Quanisha Fernanders, 23, died at the scene.

At Sunday’s bond hearing, the suspect himself explained to the judge what he said happened.

“Yesterday, you know, things got so heated, you know. She grabbed a knife and I did what I did not knowing. I loved this girl. I cried all night. I watched everything. I watched her drop everything, take her last breath, hug her, kiss her, and tell her how sorry I was. And, I’m willing to accept my punishment to the fullest,” said Wright.

The judge denied Wright’s bond.

According to a Spartanburg Police Department report, Wright was on probation for domestic violence when he attempted to escape home detention in August 2016.

Two domestic incidents involving Charvix and Fernanders were reported back in July and November of last year to the Spartanburg Police Department.
