Pro wrestler allegedly kills woman in Florida

Brian McGhee, a Missouri based independent wrestler who was recently in the WWE developmental progam, will be charged with murder after he allegedly stabbed a woman tonight in a Tampa apartment complex.

The stabbing is believed to have taken place at 8:30 p.m.  Deputies arrived at 8451 Del Lago Circle and found a female victim stabbed multiple times.  The woman died from her injuries.  The name of the victim has not yet been released by police.

Police chased McGhee's vehicle, which ended up crashing in the chase.  He was taken to the hospital and police deputies said he would be charged with first degree murder.

McGhee wrestled as Donovan Ruddick in Missouri and D.T. Porter in developmental.

About 30 minutes after the stabbing was reported, McGhee put on the profile picture on his Facebook account a sliced arm.
