Man Accused Of Fatally Stabbing Health Care Worker

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.

The Ledger of Lakeland ( ) reports 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.

Police say something upset Smith and neighbors heard screams as he chased Ross from the apartment. They say he stabbed her as they ran into the street.

Officials say Ross was likely not aware of Smith’s criminal history.
