North Adams Man Is Arraigned On A Murder Charge

North Adams Man Is Arraigned On A Murder Charge

Mark Steele-Knudslien is due to be arraigned today, January 8, in Northern Berkshire District Court. Last year, Kashmere Redd, a 28-year-old trans man living in NY, was stabbed to death by his partner, Doris Carrasquillo.

Steele-Knudslien was found by police.

Steele-Knudslien reportedly told police he had done "something very bad", and deserved to be arrested.

A pretrial hearing is scheduled for February 7th.

Steele-Knudslien was not cuffed at that point but was read his Miranda Rights, which he acknowledged, and then told the officers he had killed his wife.

The preliminary results of an autopsy on a North Adams woman indicate she died of loss of blood due to a stab wound to the torso; a contributing factor was multiple blunt force traumas to the head. Mark was held overnight by the North Adams police and transferred to the Berkshire County Jail on Saturday. According to reports, he says he and his wife got into an argument and he "snapped", stabbing her with a knife and hitting her with a hammer. It's not clear why he approached the Adams Police but neither of the Steele-Knudsliens appear to be local to the area and they had lived more recently in Adams. This Christmas, she wrote "Had a AMAZING Christmas with hubby & great friends".

This is the first murder in the city since 2013. "Christa, and her hard work for the community, will be sadly missed". In addition to founding the Miss Trans America pageant, she also helped to launch the Miss Trans New England pageant.
