BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Prosecutors have charged a woman arrested outside Ellen DeGeneres‘ home last week with misdemeanor trespassing.

District Attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison says Karen Grace Sjoden is scheduled to be arraigned in a Beverly Hills courtroom Monday afternoon.

Beverly Hills police have not released any information about Sjoden’s arrest.

Jail records show the 49-year-old woman was booked early Feb. 10.

A representative for DeGeneres did not immediately return an e-mail message seeking comment. The 53-year-old talk show host and comedian is married to actress Portia DeGeneres.
