A North Broad Street woman has been charged with stabbing her former boyfriend, according to Meriden police.
Tabatha Cornell, 42, of 1966 North Broad St., was charged last week with first-degree assault and violation of a protective order.
She was held on a $250,000 bond and was arraigned Friday in Meriden Superior Court.
Police gave the following account of the incident: On Thursday, June 14th, at approximately 6 p.m., police were dispatched to the corner of Twiss and Miller streets after receiving a report that a male had been stabbed inside a vehicle.
Upon arrival, officers found Anthony Lyons, 44, with a serious stab wound to his leg. He was immediately transported Midstate Medical Center where he was stabilized and brought into surgery. According to staff at the Midstate Medical Center, Lyons has been treated and was released on Sunday, June 17th.
Cornell initially fled from the scene, but later turned herself in after speaking with a detective on the phone. She was subsequently interviewed and cooperated with the investigation.
Several items of evidence were recovered from the scene of the stabbing, including some clothing. The vehicle occupied by Lyons was impounded, as well.
Cornell also was previously charged with second-degree breach of peace and two counts of failure to appear in court, stemming from an April incident.
Meriden officers from the patrol division, along with detectives from the Major Crime Unit and Criminal I.D. & Evidence Unit, coordinated on this case.
