On Sunday 18-year-old Tamasa Nobles of Ventnor was arrested for the alleged murder of 20-year-old Devon Devine of Millville.
Devine was found on the 300 block of Wissahickon Avenue around noon with stab wounds, and was pronounced dead only a short time later.
"Everybody was moving fast. I went outside and they moved to the side of the house, and were working on somebody. More cops came and they whisked the person away," said concerned resident, Richard Battaglia.
According to neighbors both Devine and Nobles have been seen walking outside of the Ventnor home where the stabbing occurred.
While no one says they personally knew the two, they say they never bothered anyone, and that the news comes as a surprise in what is normally known as a quiet and safe neighborhood.
"Very quiet, very peaceful. Everybody knows each other. I don't know where this came from."
Richard Battaglia was at home at the time of the incident.
Police remained on the scene for hours looking for answers that he say's everyone, including neighbors are looking for.
That investigation continued on Monday when Nobles made her first court appearance.
In an odd turn of events, a representative of the state asked to take photos of Nobles' body that may lead to substantial physical evidence.
"Based upon allegations the defendant made, of there being an altercation before the homicide, and based upon evidence of an eyewitness, there could be evidence very important to this case in the form of bruises that we would like to document," said Seth Levy of the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
Nobles' is being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility on a one million dollar cash bail.
