Santa Monica Albertson’s Murder Suspect In Jail In Lieu Of $1 Million Bail Until New Arraignment Date:

Kelvin Green, the estranged husband of an Albertson’s clerk that he stabbed to death in Santa Monica on Sunday, has been ordered to remain in jail in lieu of $1 million bail after his arraignment was postponed today.

He was scheduled to be arraigned at the LAX courthouse earlier this afternoon, but it has now been rescheduled for Sept. 8 at 8:30 a.m. at the same courthouse, located at 11701 S. La Cienega Blvd.

SMPD Sgt. Richard Lewis told The Mirror yesterday morning that Green was booked for murder on Wednesday at 4:20 p.m. at the Santa Monica Police Station.

The 54-year-old, of Los Angeles, allegedly entered the Albertson’s Market at 3105 Wilshire just before 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

He allegedly stabbed Christina Talley, 46 of Los Angeles, between 20 and 30 times at her checkout stand while she was working. Talley succumbed to her wounds in a hospital at 2:22 a.m. Monday.

At 7:30 a.m. Monday, Santa Monica detectives discovered Green had been checked into a medical center located at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and San Vicente Boulevard in Los Angeles for an unrelated medical condition, possibly drug related, after a 911 call was made.

Officers stayed with Green at the medical center until he was released into police custody on Wednesday afternoon. He was immediately taken to the Santa Monica Police Station and booked for murder.

If convicted, Green could face life in prison since he has been incarcerated before, Lewis told The Mirror.
