A 33-year-old man has been charged with stabbing a Frederick woman to death and wounding her husband, police said.

Frederick Police said Friday the charges against Carvin Solomon Jr., who has no fixed address, include first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Vanessa May Holman, 32, was stabbed numerous times at her home on the 1100 block of Keswick Place and died while emergency services workers were treating her, police said.

Her husband, Anthony Sean Holman, 34, also was stabbed, but he survived, police said. He was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital, then transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he was listed in good condition Friday night.


Detective Sgt. Bruce DeGrange of the Frederick Police Department said three children - ranging from 8 months to 5 years old - were living with Vanessa and Anthony Holman and were home at the time of the stabbings.

Solomon was the father of two of those children, DeGrange said.

DeGrange said police have an idea why the Holmans were stabbed, but he declined to discuss the reason.

Solomon also was charged with two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault and one count of wearing or carrying a dangerous and deadly weapon with intent to injure.

Solomon was in custody at the Frederick police station at 9 p.m. Friday. Corporal Dennis Dudley said police had obtained warrants for Solomon's arrest but hadn't served him with the warrants.

Solomon was stopped at about 2:15 p.m. Friday in Prince George's County and held at the police station there until Frederick Police picked him up, DeGrange said.
