The Los Angeles Police Department has released the identities of three homeless suspects connected to the fatal stabbing of a 23-year-old woman in Hollywood on Tuesday.

Dustin Kinnear, 27; Jason Wolstone, 33; and Brian Widdows, 34; have been booked on suspicion of murder in the slaying of Christina Calderon. They are accused of stabbing her to death near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue after she and a friend took photos of the three men and their signs, according to the LAPD.

Calderon was stabbed in the torso and transported to a local hospital where she died during surgery, police said.

The men are being held on $1 million bail. They are expected to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court before the end of the week.
