JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson police say Gina O'Flaherty lived long enough to tell authorities who inflicted the stab wound that ended her life.
The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/zZ0rYD) the 47-year-old O'Flaherty died at Central Mississippi Medical Center on Sunday after being taken there from Southside Baptist Church, where she was an active participant in many of its programs.
Police have arrested her 48-year-old boyfriend, Robert Bass, on a murder charge in her death.
Southside pastor Jeff Parker said O'Flaherty lived in a tent city in the woods along the east side of the church's property. He said it's his understanding she was stabbed there, and somehow made her way up the road to the church, where she called for help.
Bass' initial court appearance will be Wednesday.
