Stabbing: State police say Spies stabbed her boyfriend in the stomach about 4 a.m.

She told her boyfriend she was going to make some food when, without warning, she stabbed him with a knife, court documents allege.

Police arrived shortly after, and her boyfriend was taken to York Hospital for surgery, officials said. Troopers found blood droplets throughout the kitchen, leading out of the kitchen into the living room, according to charging documents.

Additionally, police say a large steak knife was found in the trash can in the kitchen. 

Spies said she stabbed her boyfriend because the two were physically fighting, according to court documents. 


"She said after stabbing the victim, she threw the steak knife toward the corner of the kitchen with the trash can in it," Trooper Jonathan Confer wrote in charging documents.

State police spokesman James Spencer said the two live together at the home.

Spies was taken to central booking where she was arraigned on the charges. She remains free after posting $20,000 bail.

A voicemail left for her seeking comment Wednesday, Jan. 16, was not returned. She does not have an attorney listed.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 26 at District Judge John H. Fishel's office.
