A woman is jailed under $10,000 bail after she allegedly cut her husband on the neck with a knife early Thursday at Fort Drum Studio-tels, Route 12, town of Watertown, according to the Jefferson County Sheriffs Department.
Samantha L. Webb, 24, who was staying at Studio-tels, is charged with first-degree assault. She was taken to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building following arraignment Thursday afternoon before Watertown City Judge Eugene R. Renzi. She awaits possible grand jury action.
The victim, Henry R. Carter, 29, same address, was treated at Samaritan Medical Center for a cut on the left side of his neck and later released. His injury was a result of a domestic fight that occurred about 1 a.m. Thursday, according to the sheriffs office.
Another man, 29, was in the apartment at the time, but did not see the stabbing or slashing, according to his statement, contained in the court file. Mr. Carter asked him to call for an ambulance, but did not want police notified, he told a detective.
Ms. Webb was still holding the knife when the visitor, who reported he was the victims foster brother, called for an ambulance. When giving his statement to a detective, he initially referred to Ms. Webb as Mr. Carters girlfriend, then corrected himself to say spouse.
This is the second domestic fight for the couple in which an arrest was made. Mr. Carter was charged with third-degree assault in October 2011 for punching Ms. Webb in the face, and he was sentenced to 39 days in jail and assessed court fees totaling $200 after he pleaded guilty as charged in City Court.
Ms. Webb was convicted in City Court of driving while ability is impaired by the use of alcohol in connection with an arrest in November 2009.
