    Plainville Police have made an arrest in the murder of Tiana Notice, 25, who died after being stabbed at her home Saturday night. 

    Police arrested her former boyfriend, James Carter II, 28, of Bloomfield, Sunday and charged him with murder, violation of a restraining order and criminal trespass. He was being held on a $2 million bond.

    "His name came up in the investigation and we pursued the original leads and developed enough evidence to make an arrest,” Lt. Brian Mullins, of Plainville police, said.

    Notice's best friend, Anna Petriskey, of Terryville, said she and Notice had been to the Plainville Police department five hours before the murder to report harassing e-mails.

    “She put her faith in the system that failed her,” Petriskey said. "Her tires were slashed, so she got a security camera. She had her pepper spray, she took the measures that needed to be taken to protect herself and the one thing that failed her was the system, that was the one that was supposed to be foolproof."

    Police confirmed the two brought the e-mails to their attention.

    Police were called to Notice's Whiting Street home Saturday night after receiving a 911 call reporting a woman had been stabbed. 

    Notice was lying on her deck, seriously injured and unresponsive, police said. Notice was taken to Hartford Hospital and pronounced dead around 11:45 p.m. 

    Plainville Police, with the assistance of the State Police Major Crime Squad, continue to investigation. 

    Carter is due in court on Tuesday.
