OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A South Ogden man is accused of fatally stabbing his roommate and dumped her body at an intersection.

City police say 44-year-old Jesus Martinez Ramos has been booked into the Weber County Jail for investigation of murder and investigation of obstructing justice.

Police say the 50-year-old victim was found early Monday with obvious stab wounds.

Her name hasn't been released.

Police say the stabbing may have been the result of an argument on Saturday afternoon.

It was unclear Tuesday if Ramos has a lawyer yet.

The Deseret News reports that Ramos was charged with stabbing two of his roommates in Salt Lake City in June 2017.

That case was ultimately dismissed after Ramos was determined not to be competent to stand trial and was given supervised release.
