Bail hearing to be held in Cowan Avenue stabbing
A St. John's woman accused of stabbing her partner has been found fit to stand trial and will attend a bail hearing on Wednesday.
Inger Tollefsen, 46, appeared in provincial court in St. John's on Monday on charges of aggravated assault and assault, following an incident Sunday at a home on Cowan Avenue.
According to a neighbour, Tollefsen and the 47-year-old woman who was injured lived together in the house.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is not saying much about what is alleged to have taken place on Sunday.
"I can't get into specifics about the weapon was, but I can say they were consistent with that of a stabbing," said Const. Geoff Higdon.
A neighbour told CBC News that the two women have had a volatile relationship. Higdon, though, would not comment on whether police had been called to the house before.
Tollefsen underwent a psychiatric assessment before being found fit to stand trial.
