FAIRBANKS - A 34-year-old Fairbanks woman has been charged with breaking into a home and stabbing a woman she awoke.
Alaska State Troopers say Jennifer Loving is charged with assault, burglary, theft and evidence tampering.
A woman living near Fox told troopers she awoke early Thursday morning and saw a person in her bedroom. Thinking it was her boyfriend, she called out, but when she walked into the living room, she was stabbed. She was treated at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.
Investigators interviewed the woman's landlord and learned that the tires on his vehicle had been slashed a day after he asked another tenant, Loving, to leave for not paying rent.
Loving denied involvement. Troopers say she was spotted with a bag taken from the stabbing victim's home and was arrested.
