A woman suspected of stabbing her boyfriend in the stomach on Easter Sunday is behind bars.
Kathryn Patricia Saunders of Conception Bay South made a brief appearance in provincial court in St. John’s Monday morning.
She opted not to have a bail hearing yet and agreed to go back to jail until her next court date, April 24.
The 46-year-old faces seven charges — assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon (a knife), breach of probation from May 2011 and four counts of breach of undertaking. Conditions had included that she stay away from the man she’s accused of stabbing and to abstain from alcohol.
The charges were laid following an incident that was said to have happened at around 4 p.m. Sunday at a house in Topsail.
The injured man was taken to hospital with stab wounds to the abdomen. His condition was unknown.
It’s not the first time Saunders has been accused of attacking the man in the last month.
On March 2, she reportedly assaulted him and damaged his property. She was due to appear in Family Violence Intervention Court April 4 to answer to those charges.
However, since Family Violence Intervention Court is expected to be discontinued due to budget cuts, those charges will also be dealt with April 24.
The RNC is continuing to investigate Sunday’s incident.
