Not guilty verdict in JC murder trial May 6, 2016

JC woman placed on probation in assault case

A Jefferson City woman has been placed on five years supervised probation in connection with a dispute that ended with her being stabbed in January.

Sarah Cobb, 31, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and second-degree property damage charges. A charge of first-degree burglary was dismissed.

Jefferson City police were called to the 300 block of East Dunklin Street for a call about a possible stabbing.

Police determined that Cobb was threatening the woman who lived in the residence and that Cobb was trying to help a friend who lived with the woman in the residence remove belongings.

According to the police report, Cobb started striking the door with a shovel when she was not allowed in the residence. Cobb then started to break the door in with her shoulder. The woman living in the residence, fearing for her children present, told Cobb to stay out or she would be stabbed.

Cobb continued to try to force open the door, and the resident then stabbed Cobb once in the arm as she started to gain entry.

Another witness corroborated the resident’s statement.
