Suffolk County prosecutors told the Boston Globe that two Everett women, 31-year-old Sharnell Donahue and 51-year-old Diane Tuck, have been charged with armed assault with intent to murder and armed assault with intent to rob in connection with a Winthrop stabbing.
Donahue and Tuck were arraigned today in East Boston District Court. The alleged stabbing occurred on Forrest Street around 7:40 p.m. on Thursday. The victim was a 44-year-old woman. She is in critical condition at Massachusetts General Hospital. Both Winthrop and state police are investigating the incident.
Assault with intent to rob or murder is punishable by up to 20 years in the state prison. If armed with a firearm, shotgun, rifle, machine gun or assault weapon, it is punishable by a 5-year mandatory minimum in state prison. Given the severity of these potential punishments, it is important to call an attorney if you are facing charges of assault with intent to rob or murder.
