UCSF Parnassus homicide victim identified

The 60-year-old woman who was stabbed to death during a domestic violence dispute with her male companion last week has been identified, according to the Office of the Medical Examiner.

Mina Willis, a San Francisco resident, was allegedly stabbed by her companion around 4:48 p.m. in a breezeway between buildings at the University of California San Francisco Parnassus campus in the Inner Sunset, authorities said.

Willis was taken from the 400 block of Parnassus Avenue, near the Ambulatory Care Center, to San Francisco General Hospital, where she died at 5:33 p.m., UCSF police said.

Her death marked the first confirmed homicide of the year.

Soon after the stabbing, her companion David Calvin King, 46, was arrested by UCSF police and later booked into County Jail around 10:31 p.m. on suspicion of murder, authorities said.

Neither King nor Willis were employees of UCSF, the university said.
