Stafford, VA. A wanted woman was arrested on Wednesday night by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office for aggravated malicious wounding following a domestic stabbing incident.

On January 16, 2019, Deputy Aubrecht responded to reports of a stabbing at the 700 block of Widewater Road. Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with the reporting party who advised that a female subject identified as Jeanette Hearns, 34, of Stafford had stabbed a male subject following a verbal altercation.

Deputy Betush arrived on scene at approximately 10:37 p.m. and the two deputies took Hearns into custody. They subsequently performed a sweep of the residence and found the victim lying on the kitchen floor clutching his left shoulder. He also had a bloody nose. The victim told deputies that Hearns had stabbed him.

Rescue personnel arrived and the victim was transported to a local hospital to receive medical treatment. Hearns was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear. She is also charged with aggravated malicious wounding.
