A Bay St. Louis couple was arrested on Sunday in the stabbing death of a Gulfport man.

According to a statement issued by Gulfport Police Chief Alan Weatherford, the Gulfport Police Department arrested 44 year old Carl Vincent Tucker of Bay St. Louis and charged him with one count of murder; Police also arrested Valerie Rose Frost of Bay St. Louis and charged her with one count of accessory after the fact.

“The arrests stem from a stabbing complaint at approximately 12:53 a.m. in the 2400 block of 28th Street, Buddy’s Inn,” Weatherford said. “Upon officers’ arrival they located the victim, 31 year old white male of Gulfport with multiple stabs wounds. The victim was transported to Memorial Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.”

The victim was later identified as Charles Kirschenheuter Jr. of Gulfport.

“ During the course of the investigation Tucker was developed as a suspect,” Weatherford said. “The investigation revealed that Tucker and victim got into an altercation at which time Tucker stabbed victim. Tucker then gave the weapon to Frost, who disposed of the weapon.”

Both Tucker and Frost were arrested and incarcerated at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center. Taylor’s bond was set at $1,500,000.00 and Frost’s bond was set at $250,000.00. Both bonds were set by Harrison County Justice Court Judge Gene Dedeaux.
