A Gates woman pleaded not guilty in Rochester City Court Friday morning in connection to a fatal stabbing on St. Paul Street Thursday afternoon.
Rochester Police arrested Amber Favasuli, 28, of Gates and charged her with second degree murder.
Police said they were called to St. Paul for a woman walking around with her children and blood on her clothes. A short time later they found the victim in an apartment at 1835 St. Paul.
In the felony complaint, police investigators said Favasuli stabbed Leonard Johnson, 60, some 15 times around his body. Johnson was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Investigators said several witnesses identified Favasuli. One witness said Favasuli admitted to stabbing Johnson.
Favasuli is being held without bail and due back in court next week.
