MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A woman wanted in the stabbing death of a man in New Hampshire has been apprehended in Boston, authorities said Sunday.

Stephanie Beard was arrested Saturday and has been charged with being a fugitive from justice in Massachusetts, according to New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella and Manchester Police Chief Alan Aldenberg.

The 34-year-old is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Boston Municipal Court’s South Boston Division.

New Hampshire authorities on Saturday issued a warrant charging Beard with second-degree murder in the death of John Glennon. The 71-year-old was stabbed in the head with a knife sometime early Friday at his apartment in Manchester.

Authorities said Beard then stole Glennon’s car and was last seen heading south on Route 293 in the Manchester area.

An autopsy on Glennon confirmed he died by homicide after suffering multiple sharp force injuries, officials said Sunday.
