DADE CITY, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a 25-year-old health care worker was chased down a street and fatally stabbed by one of her clients.
Reports say Steffanie Ross was stabbed multiple times with a butcher knife as witness watched on Monday. On Wednesday, 53-year-old Lucious Smith remained in the Pasco County Jail on a first-degree murder charge.
The Ledger reports Smith has a history of violent and erratic behavior.
Ross had worked as a service coordinator for Maryland-based Integra Health Management since September. She went to Smith's home on Monday morning.
Officials say Ross was likely not aware of Smith's criminal history.
