Argument over parenting skills leads to stabbing

By The Spokesman-Review

An argument over parenting skills led to the stabbing of two people early Sunday, according to the Spokane Valley Police Department.

Officers arrested Shelly R. Jones, 28, after they found her screaming that she’d stabbed two people when they arrived at an apartment in the 700 block of North Argonne Avenue about 4:30 a.m., according to police.

Jones’ three children were sent to their father’s home in Plummer, Idaho and Jones was sent to the Spokane County Jail on two charges of second-degree assault after police determined she’d stabbed two women, 37 and 31, with a metal can opener during an argument over Jones’ parenting skills, police said.

Cocaine and alcohol are believed to be factors, police said.
