A court hearing has been reset for the suspect accused of stabbing a nurse to death inside her Nashville apartment.

Ferguson was fatally stabbed inside her Wedgewood Park apartment in late-February during a burglary. 

Police said McLawhorn was in the apartment complex that night trying to break into cars and apartment, but killed Ferguson while burglarizing her condo.

McLawhorn has a limited prior arrest history in Nashville. He was arrested for public intoxication in September of 2015, misdemeanor theft in October of 2015; and failure to be booked on the misdemeanor theft charge in December of 2016.
