A 27-year-old Annapolis woman has been charged with first-degree assault after allegedly stabbing her half brother in the neck during Thanksgiving dinner, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Shenika Allsup, and her brother, Deonte Antionio Wallace, 23, had been arguing prior to the alleged attack. At some point, Allsup allegedly picked up a fork and stabbed her brother several times.
An officer responding to the incident found Wallace in the building’s parking lot holding his neck. The officer found two stab wounds at the base of Wallace’s neck. He was immediately transported to a local hospital soon after.
His injuries were not life-threatening.
Allsup was charged with second-degree assault and reckless endangerment in addition to the assault charge. At the time of her arrest, Allsup was being held on $1 million bond.
It is not clear what started the argument or why it escalated to violence.
