RALEIGH, N.C. — The woman who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her was charged Monday with murder in the death of her boyfriend.

A Durham County grand jury indicted Crystal Mangum on a charge of first-degree murder and two counts of larceny. She has been in jail since an April 3 incident that initially led police to charge her with assault in the stabbing 46-year-old Reginald Daye. He died after nearly two weeks at a local hospital.

An attorney for Mangum and officials in the district attorney’s office did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Mangum falsely accused the lacrosse players of raping her at a 2006 party at which she was hired to perform as a stripper. The case heightened long-standing tensions in Durham about race, class and the privileged status of college athletes.

Prosecutors declined to press charges for the false accusations, but Mangum’s bizarre legal troubles have continued. Last year, she was convicted on misdemeanor charges after setting a fire that nearly torched her home with her three children inside.
