  • Delaware State Police troopers have arrested a Camden woman after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend.
    The incident took place Jan. 18 at an address in the first block of Hickory Lane, Camden, according to documents released by Justice of the Peace Court 7, Dover.
    Police responding to the home to investigate a domestic complaint found the suspect, identified as Theresa Hall, 54, in the home. The trooper reported he saw an amount of blood in the kitchen area leading to a back bedroom, where he found the victim, in a bathroom with several cuts to his arms. The man, whose name was not released, changed his story several times about how he received the injuries, finally revealing that Hall had stabbed at him several times, once hitting him in the left arm. He received a second stab wound to his right arm while defending himself, the victim said.
    The documents state the man told the trooper he went into the bathroom to take care of his wounds, and did not reveal himself for fear of getting Hall in trouble.
    In a post Miranda interview at Troop 3, Hall confirmed the two had a verbal disagreement, but said the victim had left the home after she called police, but that he had blood on him when he returned. She later changed her story to say she had pulled the knife and the victim had put her in a bear hug and that he was injured as she tried to get away.
    The trooper recovered the knife thought to have been used in the assault.
    Hall was charged with second-degree assault resulting in injury, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, aggravated menacing and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child; the latter charges were the result of several children being in the home at the time of the incident.
    Hall was later released from custody on a $12,500 unsecured bond, pending a Jan. 24 preliminary hearing.
