A woman was arrested and charged with stabbing a man to death in Brooklyn Thursday night, authorities said.

Shoshana Gweta, 38, was arrested for stabbing John Gillespie, 58, in the stomach inside the Midwood apartment where they both lived, according to police.

Police responded to a call of man stabbed inside 1890 Ocean Avenue in Midwood just after 10 p.m. Thursday and found Gillespie, who was later pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby hospital.

Gweta's relationship with Gillespie is unclear. She was charged with two counts of manslaughter and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
