Coleman up for sanity hearing

2-23_KIMETHIA_COLEMAN_copyKimethia Coleman, formerly of Minden, was scheduled to appear in Caddo district court today for a sanity hearing.

According to a spokesperson for the Caddo Parish District Attorney's Office, Coleman was to appear at 11 a.m. before Judge Mike Pittman.

Reportedly, her bond has been increased from $200,000 to $2 million.

Coleman is charged with the second-degree murder of her boyfriend, Brian Spinks, in January of 2010.

According to reports, at approximately 3:29 a.m. January 17, 2010, Shreveport police patrol officers responded to a welfare-concern call at an apartment in the 100 block of Quail Creek Rd.

Upon arrival, officers discovered the body of an adult male (Spinks) in the residence who had suffered from multiple stab wounds.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police reports, Coleman was present in the apartment and initially told officers a black male suspect had entered the residence and stabbed Spinks.

Detectives, along with crime scene investigators, were dispatched to the scene where they immediately began their investigation.

"Detectives interviewed Coleman and soon learned that she had not been telling the truth," said Sgt. Bill Goodin, public information officer for the Shreveport Police Department. "Based on this interview and other evidence, investigators believe that Coleman and the victim, who were romantically involved, were engaged in some type of domestic dispute during which Coleman stabbed the victim."

Coleman is a 2003 graduate of Minden High School and 2007 graduate of Grambling State University.
