NYC man Nashan Walsh arrested for allegedly killing girlfriend Bjana James

A person was arrested for allegedly killing his girlfriend – who was discovered useless Friday along with her throat slit days after she advised family members she was frightened of her boyfriend, police stated.

Nashan Walsh, 35, was picked up police Saturday and charged with murdering mother-of-two Bjana James, 37, who was discovered by her brother with the deadly knife wound inside her condominium within the Bronx’s Betances Homes, in response to cops. 

Relations who gathered for a vigil outdoors James’ condominium on Saturday revealed to The Put up that the slain girl advised a member of the family earlier within the week that her boyfriend was appearing unusual and that she feared for her life.

James stopped replying to texts on Wednesday night time, the family members stated.

It was not instantly clear if Walsh is the boyfriend the relative was referring to.

“She mainly was texting her [relative] the day it occurred like, ‘I’m scared.  He’s gonna kill me. I’m scared for my life. He’s bugging out,’” a cousin, who gave her title as Shelly, had advised The Put up.

“He left the home. She wrote again… ‘He’s right here, he’s again,’  and ever since she wrote that we didn’t hear from her once more.”

By Friday, involved members of the family determined to go to James’ condominium — which was left open. Her brother found the grisly scene.

There have been no indicators of compelled entry or theft, an NYPD spokesman stated.

“I didn’t know she was in a home violence relationship,” her mom Stacey James advised The Put up. “I observed a change in her after they bought collectively.  She wouldn’t come see the infant as a lot.”

James leaves behind a a 12-year-old son and eight-year-old daughter, who lived with their maternal grandmother on the time of her loss of life.
