SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Missouri teenager is accused of stabbing a man with an ice pick in a dispute over a parking spot.
Caitlen Watkins, 18, of Springfield was charged Monday in Greene County with first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
According to court documents, Watkins and a passenger in her car confronted another driver Sunday in the parking lot of a shopping center after he took a parking place Watkins wanted.
Witnesses told police a fight broke out and the other driver was stabbed half a dozen times with a wooden-handled, 5-inch ice pick. Police say the other driver suffered a punctured kidney.
A judge set Watkins' bond at $75,000. She did not have a lawyer. She has not yet had a hearing or entered a plea.
