SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police have arrested a suspect in the killing of a former San Francisco public defender who was fatally stabbed inside her home.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1VPuGmu) 19-year-old Angelo Zamora was arrested Friday, and is being held at San Francisco General Hospital under the custody of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department.

Marla Zamora was found stabbed at her home Friday. She served as the principal trial attorney for the San Francisco public defender’s office before retiring in 2007 and going into private practice.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Eileen Hirst says Angelo Zamora was taken into custody in the former public defender’s office, which is adjacent to her home. He was booked on one count of murder.

Neighbors tell the Chronicle they believed the two are related and he had been living with her.
