GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro woman who is charged in the stabbing death of a newspaper delivery driver is expected to appear in court Monday, according to the News & Record.

Shasawana Harris, 35, is facing a first-degree murder charge in the stabbing death of 31-year-old Mylvin Vincent Brown Jr.

Brown, a delivery driver for the News & Record, was stabbed at the Elms Apartments on May 5, 2014. Authorities say a woman called 911 and reported that Brown showed up at her door covered in blood.

Paramedics tried to revive Brown but he died at Moses Cone Hospital from a stab wound to his neck.

Officers charged Harris in Brown’s death that same night, according to the News & Record.

Six months into her hearing, a judge ordered Harris to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. Then in February of 2015, doctors said Harris was not capable of standing trial.

By December of 2015 doctors said Harris was capable of standing trial and now she is set to face a judge Monday.

According to the News & Record, Harris is currently free on a $50,000 bail.
