A 25-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of another woman in Potrero Hill on Saturday night, police said.

Latanette McDaniel, a 35-year-old woman with no fixed address, has been identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as the victim of the knifing, which occurred on Kansas Street between 25th and 26th streets at around 11 p.m.
