BOND SET TODAY FOR WOMAN CHARGED IN FORD HEIGHTS STABBING
Monday, March 23, 2009 — Bond was set at $7,500 for a Park Forest woman charged with stabbing a 50-year-old woman during a fight over the weekend in Ford Heights, the Office of Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said Monday.
Kimberly Davis, 26, of 93 Knollwood, Park Forest, was charged Sunday evening with one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon by Cook County Sheriff’s Police detectives.
The charges stem from an incident Saturday that occurred about 4:30 p.m. in the 900 block of 16th Street in Ford Heights. On that day, Davis was visiting a friend at a home on that block, while the 50-year-old woman, who lives in Harvey, was visiting a home on the same block, just next door.
At one point, both women were outside when they began arguing with each other. The argument then escalated to a physical confrontation between the two women that included the 50-year-old woman allegedly pulling Davis’ wig off and handing it to her. As the older woman began walking away, Davis allegedly pulled out a knife and slashed the woman’s neck then allegedly stabbed her in the head more than once.
The victim was treated and released at St. James Olympia Fields Hospital in Chicago Heights. Davis was held in Sheriff’s Police custody prior to her bond hearing in 6th District Circuit Court in Markham Monday morning. She is slated to appear again in court April 13.
