ST. PETERSBURG — A 38-year-old woman is accused of fatally stabbing her live-in boyfriend after a fight, police said.
Latonya Mullins stabbed Steven L. Green in his upper body about 10 p.m. Monday inside their residence, 2510 26th St. S., according to St. Petersburg police. The 37-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene 30 minutes later.
Mullins told detectives that she acted in self-defense during a fight with the victim. But she had no visible injuries, according to police. She was arrested early Tuesday morning on a charge of manslaughter.
The two lived together for more than a year. Mullins' daughter called for officers a year ago, according to police, after an argument between the two resulted in a broken window. Then in September, police said Mullins called for officers because Green had been drinking heavily and the two were arguing.
Mullins was being held Tuesday in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $40,000 bond. She has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
