A 51-year-old Bay area woman is facing manslaughter charges in the death of her boyfriend.
Elise Vernell Johnson is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail pending her first appearance before a judge. The name of the victim is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
According to a Clearwater Police Department report officers were dispatched to 1710 North Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. just after 8 am Saturday in response to a domestic dispute call. The 58-year-old victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Investigators say Johnson stabbed the man and did not call 9-1-1 for assistance.
Additional charges are pending as the investigation continues.
