Woman Accused Of Fatally Stabbing Boyfriend In Pompano Beach
The Broward Sheriff’s Office says a woman has been taken into custody after fatally stabbing her boyfriend multiple times in Pompano Beach. Police say the homicide occurred Tuesday evening at a residence in the 2700 block of 1st Street. BSO says responding officers were called to a possible domestic violence incident at the residence and found a man suffering from multiple stab wounds. Detectives say the victim’s girlfriend, identified as Donna Lacey, stabbed him while he lay in the bedroom. She faces second-degree murder charges.
A woman accused of stabbing an EMT in Boston appeared in court Thursday and was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.
Dozens of EMTs were in court as Julie Tejeda, 31, of East Boston, was charged with assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a public employee.
Officials allege Tejeda stabbed EMT Elaina McAlister several times inside an ambulance after the EMT responded to an incident on New Chardon Street.
Woman in critical condition, good Samaritan injured in restaurant stabbing
A woman is in critical condition after she was stabbed in a Worcester restaurant, and the man who tried to save her from the assailant was also stabbed. The attack happened Wednesday night at O'Connor's Restaurant & Bar on West Boylston Street. The suspect, who witnesses said was wielding at least two knives, stabbed the woman near the front hallway of the restaurant. A bystander sitting at a nearby table, 26-year-old Allan Corson Jr., then jumped into action. "My son jumped up immediately as soon as he heard the woman screaming, and he ran toward the screaming," said his father, Allan Corson Sr. Corson tackled the suspect and the good Samaritan was stabbed in the process.
McAlister, a 14-year veteran of the department, was rushed to nearby Massachusetts General Hospital to be treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. She is expected to survive.
Several EMTs arrived at the courthouse early Thursday ahead of the arraignment to show their support.
"Our first responder family faces dangers every day," Boston Police Chief William Gross said. "There is no such thing as a routine call."
After brief initial evaluation Thursday, a doctor told the judge that Tejeda has some history with mental health treatment, but recently stopped taking her medication. The doctor suggested additional evaluation, which the judge ordered, and a return to Tejeda's medication routine.
Sources said Tejeda is also suspected in connection with threats made to two airports, including Martha's Vineyard.
