Const. Markham Long of Charlottetown Police Services escorts 34-year-old Julie Lynn Gaudet into provincial court Wednesday, March 5, 2014.
A 34-year-old Charlottetown man who was stabbed in the chest during an argument at a residence on Palmer’s Lane Tuesday has been released from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
A spokesman for Charlottetown Police Services said today the victim’s injuries were determined not to be life threatening and that his condition was stable.
A 34-year-old Charlottetown woman was formally charged with aggravated assault Wednesday in connection with that stabbing.
Julie Lynn Gaudet was also charged with breaching a probation order by violating the most basic condition of probation, that she keep the peace and be of good behaviour.
Gaudet has been remanded into custody until Friday when she will go before a justice of the peace for a show cause hearing.
Show cause hearings are held to determine whether an accused person should be remanded in custody pending trial or released upon agreeing to comply with a set of conditions imposed by the court.
Charlottetown Deputy Police Chief Gary McGuigan said Wednesday the accused and the victim were known to each other.
