Woman and Toddler found Dead in Cleveland
Fox 8 — A woman and a toddler are dead following a strange series of events on Cleveland’s east side, where authorities say an argument led to a fatal stabbing that led to a fatal car accident. Cleveland Police Sgt. Sammy Morris tells Fox 8 News that, according to a preliminary investigation, the incidents occurred at approximately 9:10 p.m. Thursday when two women in a parked vehicle started to argue. Things got heated to the point where one of the women — Kimberly Black, 29, of Cleveland — exited the vehicle, went into her house and returned with a weapon. She then proceeded to cut Sharice Swain, 29, of Cleveland, several times to the face and neck. Black then removed her clothing. Black’s children, ages 1 and 2, joined their mother outside of the home located in the 3000 block of East 125th Street. Swain, seriously injured, was in the driver’s seat of the vehicle still parked in Black’s driveway. At some point, Swain stepped on the gas pedal, striking the two kids and a house. The children were transported to Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, where 2-year-old Kimshia Ruffin died. The 1-year-old, Taraji Ruffin, is currently being treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Swain was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she expired from her injuries. Black, who fled the scene on foot, was later taken into custody in the area of East 123rd Street and Soika Avenue. After she was apprehended, Black was conveyed to Metro, where she was treated for a hand injury before being placed under arrest. She is now being held in the Central Prison Unit awaiting charges.
