OAKLAND -- A 35-year-old man on Wednesday was ordered to trial on murder charges in the fatal stabbing of a Berkeley woman in an East Oakland apartment.

Berkeley resident Jamaal Prince is accused of killing his acquaintance 26-year-old Jennifer "Jessica" Kingeter during some kind of dispute on Dec. 28, 2012. There are said to be no witnesses to the stabbing to which Prince allegedly confessed.

The killing occurred while Prince was on parole on an assault conviction for beating and choking his mother in 2010.

Prince returns to court for his post preliminary hearing arraignment on Jan. 30. He is being jailed without bail.
