Investigators believe that Barry and a female relative with whom he lived had an argument inside the home and that Barry punched the woman several times in her face, knocking her to the floor. After he walked away, she then grabbed a knife and stabbed him when he approached, police said, adding that they were the only two present in the home at the time.

Baltimore County police said the case will be reviewed by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office to determine whether the woman will face any charges.
