NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a waitress is facing a murder charge stemming from a stabbing at a Brooklyn restaurant.

Police say Lan Shui Yu has been charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a knife in connection with a dispute that killed 41-year-old Jian-Yang Zhang.

The NYPD says Zhang was found stabbed in the back and neck Monday night outside the Lucky Zhang Family restaurant in Sunset Park.

The New York Times reports that police say Zhang was visiting his sister’s restaurant when an argument turned violent.

Yu was later arrested at her home, about 250 feet away from the restaurant.

There was no immediate information on an attorney who could comment on the defendant’s behalf.
