A woman was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly stabbing her elderly neighbor because he was looking for trouble, police in the United Kingdom said.

London police said that they have arrested 32-year-old Sarah Sands, after being accused of killing 77-year-old Michael Pleasted.

Pleasted was accused of molesting three children. Sands told police that Pleasted had been asking for trouble. A court heard how Sands armed herself with a knife after drinking two bottles of wine and a bottle of brandy.

Pleasted was found with eight stab wounds. Sands said that she did not intend to kill Pleasted, and she only went to his apartment to confront him.

She armed herself with a knife because she was afraid. A friend of Sands, said that the suspect used to visit Pleasted and bring him meals before learning about the sexual abuse allegations.
