LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles prosecutors say they've charged three panhandlers in the fatal stabbing of a young woman who refused to give them $1 for taking their photographs on Hollywood's star-lined "Walk of Fame."
Spokeswoman Jane Robison says 26-year-old Dustin James Kinnear has been charged with murder, 33-year-old Jason Joel Wolstone has been charged with assault and 34-year-old Brian Joseph Widdows is accused of being an accessory.
Officers found 23-year-old Christina Calderon bleeding from multiple stab wounds near the busy intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Homicide detectives say Calderon and a friend were taking cell phone pictures in the tourist-packed area panhandlers demanded $1 for their picture. Calderon was stabbed in the torso and later died at a hospital.
