Brenda Wall

Sixty-year-old Brenda J. Wall, of Red Boiling Springs, was arrested and charged with the attempted criminal homicide of a woman and her boyfriend during the early morning hours of September 29, 2023.

According to a report by Red Boiling Springs Chief of Police Joseph Woodard, the victims were staying the night at Wall’s apartment, when they woke up to a loud noise. It was then that Wall entered the room with a knife and held it to the female victim’s throat, allegedly telling her that she would “bleed out before her boyfriend could come help her.”

Wall is accused of cutting the woman’s throat and then attacking the male victim, cutting his throat as well. 

The two victims were able to escape the apartment and walk to a nearby gas station where they ran into an off-duty RBS police officer who called for help. 

When officers arrived at Wall’s apartment, the door was wide open and she was located inside.

Both victims had injuries to their throats, and were transported for care. They have since been released from the hospital. 

Chief Woodard would like to thank the Macon County Sheriff’s Department and Macon County EMS for their assistance in this case.

The knife used to slash the victims’ throats was recovered by law enforcement along with a baseball bat. 

Wall was taken into custody and is being held on $1,250,000 bond. 

She is scheduled to appear in general sessions court on November 8, 2023.
