Albany woman pleads guilty to stabbing

January 12, 2004

Albany -- An Albany woman pleads guilty to stabbing her boyfriend's daughter.

46 year old Dorothea Jones re-enacted the fight for Judge Stephen Goss in court Monday. In October 2002 Jones and Ides Williams were arguing over a bottle of wine. Jones stabbed Williams twice, once in the thigh and once in the hand.

 Jones is also charged with arson and aggravated assault with intent to murder. Investigators say she threw a flammable liquid on the porch of a West First Avenue home in the early hours of July 28th, while six people slept inside. No one was injured.

Jones plead guilty to the stabbing charge, and will be sentenced in February following psychiatric tests.

 She could face up to 20 years in prison.
