Prosecutors filed felony charges late Tuesday afternoon against the man who allegedly stabbed his female companion to death inside a breezeway on the University of California San Francisco Parnassus campus last week, according to the District Attorney’s office.
David Calvin King, 47, was charged with murder and domestic violence in connection with the killing of 60-year-old Mina Willis last Thursday, prosecutors said.
King was arrested by UCSF police shortly after the fatal stabbing, which marked the first homicide of the year for San Francisco.
King allegedly stabbed Willis around 4:48 p.m. in the 400 block of Parnassus Avenue, near the Ambulatory Care Center. Willis died less than an hour later at San Francisco General Hospital.
King, a San Francisco resident, was booked into County Jail around 10:31 p.m. that night, where he remains without bail.
He is scheduled to appear for an arraignment Wednesday afternoon, according to the district attorney’s office.
Neither individuals were employed by UCSF at the time of the incident, the university said.
While no other homicides have been reported this year in The City, police are also investigating an unrelated suspicious death from New Year’s Day.
Traves Warren, 29, hit the ground during an argument at a store in Tenderloin and died as a result. The other man involved in the altercation was not immediately arrested.
