SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 50-year-old woman is accused of murder the stabbing death of a man found outside a downtown Salt Lake City homeless shelter in November.

A first-degree murder charge has been filed against Natalie Bluehouse, who surrendered to officers Friday.

Bluehouse had originally been named a person of interest in the death of 49-year-old Willie D. Hollingsworth, a homeless man who was found bleeding from the stomach near the Road Home shelter on Nov. 20.

He was taken to a hospital but later died. Police weren’t able to talk with him before he died of his injuries.

Witnesses told police that Bluehouse was intoxicated and threatened Hollingsworth.
