GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, MI – A North Carolina woman is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon after allegedly stabbing her mother after a camping trip in Michigan last week. Michigan State Police say Jami Evans, 45, of Havelock, North Carolina, was tried in the 86th District Court Monday.
Evans was arrested last week after an altercation with her mother that left the mother in hospital with a laceration on her arm. According to police, Evans and her mother were returning from a camping trip with Evans’ two daughters when an argument broke out.
The mother told police that she and Evans had an argument throughout the trip and it escalated when Evans lit a cigarette in the back seat of the mother’s car and refused to put it out. The mother told police that she then stopped to confront Evans and that the stabbing was said to have taken place.
The mother was treated for the laceration by the ambulance service and in a nearby hospital. A three-inch jackknife was found on the scene and Evans was taken into custody after an investigation.
The bond was set at $ 10,000 with 10% allowed. Evans is expected to be on trial again on August 5th.
