VINALHAVEN, Maine — The island woman accused of stabbing her ex-husband and son with a steak knife after Sunday night’s Super Bowl will be arraigned on April 29 at Knox County Superior Court.
Maria Witham, 30, told a domestic violence investigator with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office early Monday morning that she meant to stab her ex-husband, Joshua Anthony, during a fight late Monday night — but that she never intended to hurt her 8-year-old son.
Anthony was stabbed in the left arm and side, and had cuts on the left side of his head. The child’s hand was cut and his right arm was bruised, according to court documents.
Witham and Anthony recounted strikingly different versions of the events that led to the violence to Detective Dwight Burtis of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Burtis’ interviews with Anthony and Witham are included in the court documents…. Full story
