Bond was set at $2 million Wednesday for a woman charged with the fatal stabbing of a man in his Near West Side apartment late Saturday.

Laconda McDonald, 33, of the 4900 block of W. West End Avenue, is charged with murder and armed robbery. She was also wanted on a warrant, police said.

She's accused of stabbing Julius Goodman, 56, in the neck inside his apartment in the 2300 Block of West Jackson.

Police were called to the third-floor apartment at about 11:50 p.m. Saturday and found the victim lying on the floor in a pool of blood, stabbed, according to News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Wednesday, Judge Laura Sullivan ordered her held on $2 million bond and set a preliminary hearing for Feb. 28, according to Cook County State's Attorney's office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton.
