MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – The funeral for the Middle Tennessee State University basketball player that was found stabbed to death last week has been scheduled.

Tina Stewart, 21, will be laid to rest on Saturday in Memphis.

Stewart's visitation will be Friday at 4 p.m. at the N.J. Ford and Sons Funeral Home in Memphis.

Her funeral will be held on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Soul Winner's Church.

The Lady Raider was found stabbed to death in her Murfreesboro apartment Wednesday night, hours later her roommate Shanterrica Madden, 18, was charged with first degree murder.

Police are still working to determine what led to the stabbing incident.

On Thursday night, hundreds of mourners gathered at Murphy Center to remember the slain basketball player.

Stewart was scheduled to play in the Sunbelt Conference in Arkansas this weekend with the MTSU Lady Raiders.

The team decided to play in honor of their fallen teammate.
