Second sister arrested in North Nashville funeral home stabbing


Metro police have arrested the second sister suspected in a stabbing Monday afternoon at a funeral home in North Nashville.

Travonda Chatman, 26, was booked into the Metro jail Monday night on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Her sister, Angel Chatman, 28, was taken into custody earlier in the day on the same charges.

Metro police responded around 1 p.m. Monday to Terrell Broady Funeral Home on Clarksville Pike for a report of stabbing.

Officers said Angel Chatman had arrived at the funeral home for the visitation of her ex-boyfriend, along with Travonda Chatman, and was told to leave by the mother and sister of the deceased.

There was an argument and when the deceased’s relatives turned around, police said Angel Chatman pulled out a knife and stabbed the deceased’s sister in the back.

Angel and Travonda Chatman then pulled out guns and pointed them at several family members of the deceased, officers said.

As the Chatman sisters returned to their vehicle, police said the deceased’s brother got out of a truck and Angel Chatman backed up and pinned the brother between her vehicle and the truck.

There were three small children in the vehicle with Angel Chatman. They were not wearing seatbelts and were standing up while Angel Chatman was driving erratically, investigators said.

The sisters fled the funeral home but were eventually arrested.

The injured brother and sister of the deceased were transported to a hospital for treatment.

No other details were immediately released.
