Police have arrested a woman for the deadly stabbing of a man last month in the City of Rochester.

Officers say George E. Rogers, age 73, was found dead inside an apartment on Rosewood Terrace on February 5.

Investigators said he had been stabbed multiple times. Police say they later identified 27-year-old Jazmine Simmons as a suspect.

She was arrested on Saturday and charged with murder in the second degree. Police say Simmons, who is homeless, was arraigned Monday morning in city court.

News 8 is working to learn more about what led up to the stabbing.

UPDATE: In court papers, police say Rogers was stabbed in early January, but his body wasn’t found until a month later when his landlord went to check on him.

After being arrested, police say Simmons admitted to the murder.
