LOS ANGELES, Calif.–A man accused of fatally stabbing his estranged wife at a Santa Monica supermarket where she worked as a clerk was charged today with murder.
Kelvin Green, 52, is accused in Sunday’s stabbing of his estranged wife, Christina Talley, who died a day after being attacked as she worked at a checkstand at an Albertsons store at 3105 Wilshire Blvd.
Green was initially identified as a person of interest, then ultimately determined to be a suspect in the 46-year-old woman’s slaying, according to Santa Monica police.
He was arrested Monday, then taken to an area hospital to be treated for an unspecified medical illness, police said.
Along with one count of murder, Green faces one count of assault involving a good Samaritan who tried to intervene but was not injured, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Green was ordered to remain jailed in lieu of $1 million bail pending arraignment, which was postponed to Sept. 8.
