Howard County police charged a Columbia woman with attempted murder yesterday in the stabbing of her former boyfriend during an argument.

Police said a woman and a man were arguing at Carters Lane and Guilford Place at 6 p.m. Monday, when the man began throwing large rocks at her car.

"They were having an argument over a set of keys," said Sgt. Morris Carroll, a police spokesman. "She then returned to her car and pulled out a knife."

Adrianne Abron, 32, of 8800 block of Flowerstock Row is accused of stabbing Richard Matthews, 39, of Columbia once in the abdomen, police said.

Matthews was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was listed in critical condition last night.
