Also last week this 28-year-old women stabbed her husband at the " Right Step Hotel on Watson street. The man ended up dying from his wounds. Now this hotel is no joke, I had a boyfriend when I was a teen who lived on Watson street, so I always passed by the motel. It is basically a crack head type of place. There is even a sign on the side of the hotel that says " Drug Free Zone" haha yeah right what a joke and unfortunately incidents like this is not a surprise in that vicinity.
