TAMPA, Florida — Authorities say a former professional wrestler faces murder charges in the stabbing death of a woman at a Florida apartment complex.

Sheriff's officials say the woman was stabbed Wednesday night and the suspect fled. Twenty-nine-year-old Brian McGhee's vehicle was spotted in Tampa and authorities began pursuing him.

Authorities say McGhee crashed his vehicle late Wednesday during the pursuit. The woman died of multiple stab wounds early Thursday.

As a wrestler, McGhee went by the moniker "The Future" Donovan Ruddick. He worked for World Wrestling Entertainment from 2010 to 2012.

McGhee was taken to a Tampa hospital after the crash.

A photo of what appears to be a bleeding arm or leg was posted Wednesday night to a Facebook page under McGhee's name.
