A 32-year-old Lawrence woman was sentenced to a two-year probation term Friday in connection with a stabbing in July.
Matilda Ornelas pleaded no contest to aggravated battery July 30 as part of an agreement with prosecutors.
Ornelas was arrested days after a 37-year-old Lawrence man was taken on July 12 to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with two stab wounds to his torso. Police determined the man was stabbed in connection with an earlier disturbance in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street. The man’s injuries required surgery.
During sentencing, prosecutors told Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin the man asked that Ornelas not receive jail or prison time.
