A woman charged in the fatal stabbing of her former boyfriend as he sat in a van at a traffic light in southeast Baltimore surrendered last night and was being held without bond.

Homicide Detective Richard Garvey said Juanita Felicia Brown, 31, of the 2700 block of Mosher St., surrendered at the Northwestern District station about 11 p.m.

Garvey said Brown had been sought in the death of Ulysses Harris Jr., 34, of the 4400 block of Vesta Ave., who died Tuesday evening from stab wounds to the chest.

Harris was driving a rental truck in the 2900 block of Baker St. about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when he stopped for a red light at Poplar Grove Street.

Seated next to Harris was his current girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter. Because they witnessed the attack, police said, their names were withheld.

Before the light turned green, a woman approached the van, stepped up onto the running board, stabbed Harris several times in the chest with a knife and fled, police said.

Police said Harris was able to drive to the 2700 block of Baker St. before collapsing behind the wheel. He died about an hour later at University of Maryland Medical Center.

Garvey said witnesses identified Brown and a warrant was issued.

After Brown surrendered last night, she was taken to the homicide squad at police headquarters and formally charged with first-degree murder and using a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.

From police headquarters, Brown was remanded to the Women's Detention Center at the Central District and held overnight without bail pending a bail review hearing today before a District Court judge.
