MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

The 19-year-old woman accused of stabbing a Middle Tennessee State University basketball player has filed a lawsuit against the apartment complex that the incident occurred at.

Attorney Joe Brandon Jr. the filed suit against Raiders Crossing on behalf of his client Shanterrica Madden on Wednesday.

Madden is accused of stabbing 21-year-old Tina Stewart inside their apartment located on Hazelwood Street multiple times on March 2, 2011.

The victim's family previously said that Stewart repeatedly complained about Madden smoking marijuana in the off campus apartment.

Stewart's family also filed a similar suit against the complex earlier this month.

Both lawsuits claim the apartment complex knew about the roommates' problems and should have separated them.

Brandon previously said Madden acted in self-defense on the night of the incident.

Madden is charged with first degree murder.

Her trial is scheduled to begin on May 7.
