James says deputies were called to Smith's home in the 700 block of Mitchell Court shortly before 5:30 a.m. Monday and arrived to find him suffering from a stab wound.

Smith was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

James says Bocanegra and Smith were "acquaintances" but what motivated her to allegedly stab him is "still being investigated."

As of 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Bocanegra had yet to be formally charged.
