SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police say a man who was stabbed 12 times in the neck with scissors has died from his injuries.

The Deseret News reports that a GoFundMe page for 67-year-old Linton Livingston says he died on Saturday.

Livingston's neighbor, 23-year-old Dyann Mariel Hernandez, is accused of stabbing him Nov. 15 in what authorities say was an unprovoked attack.

Hernandez was arrested and her bail set at $500,000.

The stabbing occurred just one day after Hernandez was charged in a separate case with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony, and child abuse, a misdemeanor.

Court documents say that in December, Hernandez was charged in another case with aggravated robbery after she was accused of threatening her mother and a man with a knife. That case was dismissed.
