A 35-year-old woman was killed on Saturday night on the 1400 block of Kansas Street (at 25th Street), a few blocks from SF General Hospital, police said Monday. 

Latanette McDaniel, who did not have a fixed address, was allegedly stabbed to death with a knife by 25-year-old Vernisha Mandigo of San Francisco, according to the Examiner.

SFPD spokesperson Officer Adam Lobsinger says that Mandigo has been arrested and booked at the San Francisco County Jail on one count of homicide.

"The relationship between Mandigo and the victim, as well as the events leading up to the homicide, are still under investigation," Lobsinger added.

Anyone who has information about this homicide is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
