Carmen Alene Knight's body was found by a neighbor outside her home in the 8400 block of North Burke Drive, near West Cortaro Farms and North Thornydale roads, shortly before 7 a.m. Feb. 8, 2007 . Alene Knight, 35, had gone out with her sister the evening before and prosecutors believe she was attacked after she arrived home between 1:30 and 2 a.m. An autopsy revealed she suffered multiple stab wounds and that her throat was slashed. Her coward of an ex-husband, Shad Knight, disabled the electric gate two weeks before, forcing Alene to have to get out and open the gate. That is when Shad jumped out and attacked Alene... while his small children slept inside.
