A 30-year-old woman pleaded not guilty Monday to murder charges for the fatal stabbing of her live-in boyfriend in South San Francisco earlier this month, San Mateo County prosecutors said.
Victoria Soledad Garcia is accused of killing 35-year-old Christhian Alderete, her boyfriend of five years, at about 3 p.m. on Oct. 7 at their home at a trailer park in the 1700 block of El Camino Real, according to the district attorney's office.
Prosecutors said the stabbing occurred after an argument over a woman who contacted Alderete through Facebook. Soledad Garcia allegedly grabbed a large kitchen knife and stabbed Alderete in the upper chest, severing an artery.
Alderete bled to death at the entrance to their home, and Soledad Garcia was arrested and booked into jail.
She entered the not guilty plea Monday at her arraignment in San Mateo County Superior Court. She remains in custody on no-bail status and will return to court for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 4.
