A McKeesport woman was charged with homicide Wednesday in the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend from McKeesport inside a South Side apartment, according to Pittsburgh police.

Cassandra Locke, 52, allegedly stabbed Daryl Waite, 49, on Tuesday night inside a third-floor apartment along the 700 block of South 21st Street, police and the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Waite went to the building’s lobby, where he collapsed, police said. Police reported finding him with a chest wound lying on the floor at 10:50 p.m.

He was transported by ambulance to UPMC Mercy hospital in Pittsburgh, where he died, the medical examiner said. The results of an autopsy were not released.

Locke was arraigned before Pittsburgh District Judge Derwin Rushing on a criminal homicide charge and placed in the Allegheny County Jail.

She was denied bail, pending a preliminary hearing scheduled for Nov. 15 before Allegheny County Judge Jeffrey Manning.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
