The case of a 34-year-old Charlottetown woman charged with aggravated assault in connection with a recent stabbing incident on Palmers Lane has been adjourned to April 15 for trial.

Julie Lynn Gaudet has entered a not guilty plea to that charge through her defence counsel.

Gaudet is 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.

No plea has been entered on that charge. That charge will be spoken to when the case returns to court for trial.

Gaudet will remain in custody at the provincial correctional centre. At a recent show cause hearing a justice of the peace ordered that she be detained in custody until dealt with by law.

Police reports issued at the time of the incident indicate the accused and the victim of the stabbing, a 34-year-old man, were known to each other.

Police said the two apparently became embroiled in an argument that escalated to the point of violence.

The injured male was treated for his wound and later released.

Gaudet is no stranger to the court.

In June of last year she was sentenced to 60 days in jail for an assault on another woman at the Southport Hotel and a further 60 days in jail, to be served concurrently, for forcible entry.

Crown attorney Jeff MacDonald told the court at that time that Gaudet had a lengthy, related and violent criminal record.
