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 yesterday 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 that Watkins wanted.
Witnesses told police that a fight broke out and that Watkins stabbed the other driver half a dozen times with a wooden-handled, 5-inch ice pick.
Police said the victim suffered a punctured kidney.
A judge set Watkins' bond at $75,000. She did not have a lawyer. She had not yet had a hearing or entered a plea.
