COMPTON, Calif.–A woman was charged today with murder for the stabbing death of a man with whom she had two children.

Lashon Williams, 30, pleaded not guilty in Compton Superior Court in connection with the weekend slaying of Trisiton Taylor, 32.

The crime occurred at Williams’ apartment in the 16100 block of South Ainsworth Street about 7 p.m. Saturday, after the pair began arguing, said Los Angeles police Detective Jim Vena of the Southeast Station.

“The suspect produced a knife and stabbed the victim,” Vena alleged.
Taylor died at a hospital.

Officers arrested Williams at the scene, and recovered the knife believed used in the crime.

Williams is due back in Compton Superior Court June 19, when a date is scheduled to be set for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to require her to stand trial.
