A woman accused of stabs a man in National City pleaded not guilty Monday to one count of manslaughter.

Police responded around 6 a.m. Thursday to find the victim, identified in the indictment as Calvin Martin, who was seriously injured in East Ninth Street and L Avenue. Rescuers rushed him to UCSD Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Amalia Samaniego, 44, was arrested near the scene in connection with the knife.

Prosecutors allege he stabbed Martin and then hit him with a handle or broomstick.

The suspected motive for the stabbing has not been revealed, but during her extradition on Monday afternoon, Samaniego told the court that the victim strangled her and threatened to kill her.

Her relationship, if any, with Martin did not circulate.

Shamaniego, who remains a detainee without bail, is charged with murder and stabbing. If convicted, he faces up to 26 years in prison.
