GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A 38-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of deliberate homicide in the stabbing death of a north-central Montana man last month.

Cascade County officials say Linda Christianson was served with a warrant Tuesday while jailed in Ravalli County for reportedly violating her probation in a 2010 drug case there.

Christianson is charged with killing 41-year-old Steven Fletcher on March 5 at a residence in Great Falls. She also faces a charge of tampering with evidence. The warrant lists her bail at $500,000 in the homicide case.

Fletcher’s death was initially reported as a suicide.

Records indicate Christianson was booked into the jail in Hamilton on March 31. She remained there on Wednesday.
