Suspect in Christmas Day stabbing now charged with murder in Christmas Eve attack

A man arrested early Christmas morning for allegedly stabbing a woman in the South of Market neighborhood has been charged with murder in the death of another woman that occurred just seven hours earlier.

Christine Moyer, 64, was found stabbed to death on the 400 block of Jessie Street between Sixth and Mint streets at 5:38 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Hours later and three blocks away, a 46-year-old woman was stabbed at 12:40 a.m. on the first block of Third Street and taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Michael Jacobs, 27, was arrested and charged with attempted murder after being identified by a witness in the second attack. He appeared in court for the first time Thursday, where his arraignment was continued to Monday.

On Friday he was charged with murder for the attack on Moyer.

In court filings, the District Attorney’s office said the victim in the second attack was sleeping in a chair on Third Street when Jacobs approached and assaulted her, as she repeatedly screamed “Leve me alone!” and “Get off me!”

“What did you do, stab me? He stabbed me. 911, 911,” she said after kicking Jacobs in the knee and falling out of her chair.

A witness described the suspect to police officers, who found Jacobs minutes later with blood on his clothes and shoes, and a bloody knife in his right front breast pocket.

The unidentified victim suffered an almost-severed index finger on her right hand, a cut middle finger on her left hand, and multiple stab wounds to her shoulder blade and neck.

Court documents indicate Jacobs was on probation for grand theft at the time of his arrest and earlier this year had been sent to Napa State Hospital after being declared mentally incompetent, although the circumstances remain unclear.

Jacobs told police he was not guilty and put his fingers in his ears to avoid hearing his Miranda rights, according to court documents. He is currently being held without bail. Crime
