    Quentin Bird Sentenced to LWOP in 2017 TN Slaying of Allison Tenbarge and Unborn Child

    Quentin Bird

    Tenn. man faces additional murder charges in connection with Evansville woman's death

    The Evansville Courier & Press

    CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. A Clarksville, Tennessee man is facing additional murder charges after he was indicted this month and charged with killing an Evansville woman and her 8-month-old fetus.

    Quentin Bird, 22, was indicted on six counts in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend, 20-year-old Allison Tenbarge, at his Clarksville apartment on April 18.

    He was originally charged with criminal homicide and had his case bound over to a grand jury in June.

    According to the indictments, Bird "unlawfully, feloniously, intentionally and with premeditation" killed Allison Leigh Tenbarge by repeatedly stabbing her with a knife causing her to suffer fatal injuries.

    Police allege the attack also intentionally killed Parker Jackson Tenbarge, a fetus in a stage of gestation in utero by stabbing his mother.

    The indictment charges him with two counts of premeditated, first-degree murder, two counts of felony murder and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.

    According to testimony at his preliminary hearing, Bird stabbed his ex-girlfriend at least 21 times and could face the death penalty when the case goes to trial.

    Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding told local reporters in April he felt a special connection to the Tenbarge family as he and Tenbarge's father, Kenny, joined the sheriff's department around the same time and "grew up at the office together."

    "(Allison) was a good, fun-loving young woman," he told the Courier & Press in April. "She was getting ready to start a life and build a career. She was just a great person."

    Lt. Kenny Tenbarge works at the jail and as one of the agency's firearm instructors. The elder Tenbarge has been with the office for more than two decades, Wedding said.

    "We've watched (our) daughters grow up. You exchange a few stories about your kids and their kids. ... Kenny is one of our lieutenants at the jail," Wedding said. "He's getting older like me so we're both looking at retirement down the road, and our kids were on the way to being young adults. To see one taken away so abruptly like this it's a horrible thing."

    During a preliminary hearing in connection with Tenbarge's death in General Sessions Court, Clarksville Police Detective Eric Ewing testified that after Bird was tracked down in Kentucky, he confessed.

    Tenbarge had broken off the relationship a few days earlier and moved back home but went to Bird's Clarksville apartment the morning of April 18 with a female friend to get her belongings.

    Bird left work after finding out she was there, and they argued, with Tenbarge accusing Bird of seeing other women.

    Bird told Ewing that Tenbarge slapped him twice.

    "He said she had slapped him, and a switch flipped, and he stabbed her two or three times," Ewing testified.

    Tenbarge's friend left briefly after Bird asked her to buy him some gum, and when she returned, he was gone and no one answered the door.

    Bird texted her several times saying he was with Tenbarge running errands, but when police went to the apartment for a welfare check several hours later, they found her dead inside.

    Clarksville Police tracked down Bird the day after the slaying with the help of OnStar in his Camaro and the Kentucky State Police and U.S. Marshals.

    After the preliminary hearing, Assistant District Attorney Robert Nash told The (Clarksville) Leaf-Chronicle that he planned to examine the autopsy file and may seek the death penalty because Allison Tenbarge was eight months pregnant.

    "The victim was close to giving birth," Nash said. "It's a very serious matter. In this case, it is definitely being considered."

    An Evansville woman was killed two years ago. Her case hasn't gone to trial | Webb

    By Jon Webb
    Evansville Courier & Press

    Allison Tenbarge was a beloved young woman.

    She filled her Facebook page with pictures of her dogs. She studied criminal justice at Indiana State University. And in the spring of 2017, the 20-year-old Harrison High School graduate expected her first child: a little boy named Parker.

    But on April 18, 2017, all that shattered.

    Tenbarge and her unborn child were found stabbed to death in a Clarksville, Tennessee, apartment. She had reportedly traveled down there to retrieve some belongings from her ex-boyfriend Quentin Bird.

    Police eventually arrested Bird at an RV park in Kentucky.

    He’s since been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, in addition to kidnapping and other charges. Investigators claim he stabbed Tenbarge at least 21 times.

    This month will mark two years since Tenbarge’s killing. But the man accused of doing it has yet to go to trial.

    According to court records out of Montgomery County, Tennessee, where Bird will get tried, the case has been smacked with multiple delays.

    Robert Nash, the assistant district attorney assigned to the case, said those stemmed from everything from waiting on lab reports to the "significant amount" of evidence investigators waded through after the killing. Plus, Bird underwent weeks of mental health evaluations.

    A status hearing was scheduled for Thursday, and Nash said prosecutors hoped to walk away with a trial date.

    He guessed it could start in early 2020. That would mean Tenbarge’s family could wait almost three years for some kind of legal resolution in their daughter’s killing.

    That seems like an exorbitant amount of time — both for the family and the accused. But Nash said none of this is out of the ordinary for a high-profile murder trial.

    “These are normal delays,” he said on Wednesday.

    Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding, who worked with Allison’s father Kenny, said the system can get glacial at times – especially cases where mental health evaluations are involved. But anything more than two years is “pushing it.”

    “I would think most straight-up murders could be tried in a two-year window,” he said on Wednesday.

    He provided the example of Clint Loehrlein: the Vanderburgh County man recently sentenced to 150 years for the murder of his wife and the attempted killings of his two daughters. Loehrlein went on his rampage in January 2017, the case wrapped in August 2018, and he was sentenced last month.

    “It’s just tough,” Wedding said. “(Courts get) overloaded with cases. And there’s what they put on people to make sure you’re not wrongfully convicting somebody.”

    None of that takes the appeals process into account, either. If Bird is found guilty, he could fight the ruling for decades.

    The complicated case — which involves a grand jury indictment and a suspect crossing state lines — has unwound slowly and methodically from the start.

    After his arrest, Bird spent time in a Christian County, Kentucky, jail before being extradited to Tennessee. His case was sent to a grand jury in June 2017, and he was originally charged with criminal homicide before prosecutors filed murder charges that December.

    In his Montgomery County court docket, the word "rescheduled" appears 15 times.

    Meanwhile, Allie's friends and family keep waiting.

    "(Allison) was a good, fun-loving young woman," Wedding told the Courier & Press in 2017. “She was getting ready to start a life and build a career. She was just a great person

    Clarksville man to serve two consecutive life sentences for stabbing deaths of ex-girlfriend, unborn child

    By Alexis Clark
    Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle

    A Clarksville man who was found guilty in the 2017 stabbing deaths of his pregnant ex-girlfriend and their unborn child was in court for sentencing Wednesday morning at the Montgomery County Courthouse.

    Quentin Bird's hearing determined if his two sentences of automatic life in prison will be served consecutively, meaning back to back, or concurrently, meaning at the same time.

    Bird was sentenced by Judge Jill Ayers to serve the life sentences consecutively after he was found guilty of murdering 21-year-old Allison Tenbarge and their unborn son, Parker.

    Tenbarge, of Evansville, Indiana, had ended her year-long relationship with Bird just a week before her death, according to court records.

    She went to her ex-boyfriend's Clarksville apartment to pick up the last of her things when he stabbed her over twenty times, striking the fetus three times. Tenbarge was eight months pregnant at the time of her death.

    Assistant District Attorney Robert Nash said the automatic life sentences, served consecutively, is fitting.

    "Given the heinous nature of the homicides, killing two people according to our Tennessee law, he did deserve two consecutive life's without parole sentences," said Nash.
