After repeated attempts to make contact with no response, the officer eventually kicked down the door to gain access. Inside, they encountered Alexander and instructed her to get on the ground, subsequently detaining her. 

Further examination revealed blood splatters in the living room, with a trail leading towards the restroom. A knife with blood on it was discovered in the living room. 

Once officers located Byrd, they observed a bleeding laceration near his neck and a head wound that was covered in blood.

Alexander faces charges of aggravated assault with the intent to murder and obstruction/hindering law enforcement. 

She was booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center. Alexander remains in custody without the possibility of bond.
