Her boyfriend said the two had been arguing lately and that she thought he was still having a relationship with his ex-girlfriend. 

Police say her boyfriend spent the night at Klein's home Sunday, Aug. 6, and the next morning they began arguing. Klein claimed he was cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend, but he said the two still talk because they have a child together, documents state.

Alleged stabbing: The two went to Klein's bedroom, and the arguing continued.

Her boyfriend said Klein pulled a knife out and stabbed him in his right arm, documents allege. He tried to keep her from stabbing him again but was unsuccessful, and she stabbed in him in the area of his neck and chest, according to police.

Her boyfriend wrapped a T-shirt around the wound to his arm and left the residence, documents state. Police say he had a deep laceration to his right forearm and a deep puncture wound to his chest in the area of his neck.

Police spoke with Klein, who told them that her boyfriend agreed to leave after they were arguing. She told police he needed to get his sweatshirt out of her car, and she didn't want to unlock her car for him, documents state.

Klein said she was upset her boyfriend kept talking to her, so she grabbed his pocket knife, which was on a shelf, and stabbed him multiple times, according to police.

Klein was arraigned and remanded to York County Prison Monday, Aug. 7, but she posted $50,000 bail that same day. A phone number for her could not be found, and she does not have an attorney listed.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for 3:15 p.m. Aug. 21 at District Judge Scott Gross' office.
