December 20, 2010|By Liz F. Kay, The Baltimore Sun

A Hanover woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend was arrested Sunday and charged with attempted second-degree murder, reckless endangerment and assault, according to Anne Arundel County police.

Officers first spoke to the boyfriend of Jenna Russell, 25, of the 1400 block of Misty Lake Court about 9 a.m. Sunday, when he went to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for treatment of stab wounds, police said. The 21-year-old Severn resident initially told police that he had been stabbed in the upper torso at a party Saturday night, and he was taken to the University of Maryland Medical Center for further treatment.

But detectives later determined that the man and Russell had an argument early Sunday, and she stabbed him, police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said. Investigators found evidence from the crime in her home, according to Mulcahy.
