SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A West Valley City woman has been ordered to stand trial in the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend during a Labor Day barbecue.

Thu Huong Thi Nguygen (WIN’) is charged with murder, obstruction of justice and domestic violence in the presence of a child. She faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Witnesses testified during a hearing Wednesday that Nguyen and the 44-year-old victim, Thai Van Le, had been fighting for hours before the stabbing.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/1toesh2 ) says one witness testified that Le had dared Nguyen to stab him. Another testified that Le was sitting on a couch in the living room holding the couple’s small child when Nguyen attacked him last September.

Nguyen’s arraignment is scheduled for June 9.
