PITTSBURGH (AP) - Police say a woman fatally stabbed a man during an argument in Pittsburgh.

Ashanna Tanisha Green was charged Wednesday with criminal homicide in the death of 30-year-old Jamar Nelson.

The 29-year-old Green is jailed pending arraignment. Online court records didn’t list a lawyer to comment on the charges.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 2.

Police say they found Nelson lying on the sidewalk in front of a home in Pittsburgh’s Beechview section around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Nelson had a stab wound to the back. He was pronounced dead at UPMC Mercy around 10:15 p.m.
