SF: MAN ACCUSED OF FATALLY STABBING GIRLFRIEND IN 2007 TO STAND TRIAL
SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
A San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday that a 32-year-old man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death in 2007 should stand trial for murder.
Umar Hudson, of San Francisco, is also accused of sexually assaulting the two young daughters of the girlfriend, 32-year-old Jernell Scott, in 2006 and 2007.
One of the daughters reported the alleged crimes in February 2007. On April 6 of that year, Hudson allegedly stabbed Scott 39 times, prosecutors said.
The stabbing happened in the 900 block of Ellsworth Street, according to police. Hudson was arrested later that night.
Hudson now faces trial on one count of murder and four counts of sexual assault, according to the district attorney's office.
Hudson remains in custody on $10 million bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court on April 15.
