WRIGHTSVILLE, Pa. –Police arrest a Manchester Township woman for her role in the brutal murder of Samantha Young  on April 19th. Natasha Stover, 19, is alleged to have exchanged text messages with accused killer Marcus Bordelon planning the murder, and possibly others.

Police found Young’s half-clothed body in a storage area connected to the house at 121 Chestnut Street, where her ex-boyfriend, Marcus Bordelon, lived. She’d been stabbed 52 times.

Bordelon was trying to clean up a large amount of blood on the floor with bleach when police arrived. According to documents, there was a knife and a stun gun on the floor near Bordelon.

According to court documents, the texts tell the story of the plans taking shape over several months. When Bordelon asked Stover questions about using Demoral and chloroform on someone, Stover replied, “Let me help you. It will be easier with two people.” Police say the texts identify two other people the couple planned to kill: Young’s boyfriend and another girl Bordelon was dating.

Apparently Young and Bordelon had a stormy relationship, with a history of domestic violence. The two shared a one year-old daughter.  She is currently being cared for by relatives.

Stover is charged with Homicide, Conspiracy to Commit Murder, Attempted Homicide, Abuse of a Corpse and Obstructing Law Enforcement.
