Washington County Stabbing

By  | 

It's being called a domestic violence incident. A Washington County man is in the hospital Saturday night after being stabbed late last night at a home off Ohio Route 7.

Washington County Deputy Brian Shook tells us 48-year-old Brenda Ward is being held on $35,000 bond.

Ward is believed to have stabbed Tracy McConnell, at the residence the two shared on Ingram Road. She is charged with felonious assault.

Authorities say Ward stated to them that she told McConnell, quote, "If you ever lay another hand on me I'll kill you" sometime within the last two weeks.

McConnell is in the intensive care unit of Marietta Memorial Hospital after suffering a wound to the abdomen, but no information on his condition is available.

Ward is scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning in Marietta Municipal Court.
