IN â€” The family of a New Mexico State University student found stabbed to death Friday morning in an Indiana dorm room where she was staying as part of an exchange program is in shock.
Liette Nicole Martinez, 22, bled to death after being stabbed several times. She was declared dead by paramedics upon their arrival, after she was discovered by a roommate.
Police arrested Tina Loraine Morris, 36, and charged her with murder and auto theft charges.
Police have not commented on a motive or said anything about what may have led up to the stabbing.
Mother Geraldine Martinez said she has not been given a lot of details, but she and her husband Gabriel have a lot of questions.
She said her daughter had never mentioned Morris, who is the mother of one her daughter's three roommates or that she was having trouble with anyone.
Martinez, who was known to her friends as "Lola," blogged about her life on her myspace.com account about being homesick, her future and school.
Since Friday, friends have posted messages on her myspace.com about how much they miss her and of their loss.
On the account, Martinez described how she'd like to die.
"In a really cool tragic way as long as I don't take anyone down with me."
