Thursday, September 20, 2012

A Monett woman has been arrested in connection with the Sept. 12 stabbing of a Cassville man.

According to Monett Police Chief Tim Schweder, Wendi J. Sitton, 32, of Monett, was arrested on Sept. 14 after investigators received information during a second interview with the victim, Jonathan Gemmecke, 32, of Cassville. Gemmecke said that Sitton had stabbed him during a domestic altercation on Sixth Street in Monett.

Gemmecke drove himself to Cox-Monett Hospital and was subsequently airlifted to a Springfield hospital with serious injuries.

Lawrence County Prosecuting Attorney Don Trotter has charged Sitton with first degree domestic assault causing serious physical injury and armed criminal action. She is in custody at the Lawrence County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

A Missouri case.net search revealed Sitton was convicted of second degree burglary and felony stealing charges in 2009 and was placed on probation.
