DULUTH — Authorities have identified a 19-year-old woman who died last week in Duluth's Endion neighborhood, and a teenage family member has been charged with killing her.
Karimah Phuly, who sustained stab wounds, was pronounced dead at the scene Friday. A 15-year-old was taken to the Arrowhead Juvenile Center, and the St. Louis County Attorney's Office on Tuesday charged him with second-degree homicide.
Duluth police initially responded to a report that a man had been assaulted in the 1700 block of East Superior Street on Friday night, but investigators cleared the scene after interviewing the man, who told them he hadn't been assaulted.
They were sent back to the same address on a medical call less than 10 minutes later and found Phuly unresponsive.
The teenager facing charges has not been named because he is a juvenile.
