Woman charged with felonious assault a week ago charged with gun crime Saturday
A woman charged a week ago with stabbing her boyfriend in the head and elsewhere is back in jail after being charged with possessing a stolen handgun Saturday.
Michelle D. Hill, 44, of Hoyt Street Southwest, pleaded not guilty Monday in Warren Municipal Court to receiving stolen property and carrying a concealed weapon.
Police charged her Saturday evening after they found her with a handgun in her jacket in the Hampshire House Apartments on Fifth Street Southwest.
Police were called there for shots fired from behind the apartments at 7:27 p.m. An officer walked along a fence line behind the apartments and observed Hill and asked her if she was OK.
She appeared to be using her hands to conceal her pockets, police said. When Hill was asked if she had a gun, she “froze,” the officer said.
When she ignored a command to put her hands up and interlace her hands on her head, the officer ordered her to the ground. She did so but kept reaching toward her pocket, the officer said. Officers found a stolen handgun in her jacket pocket.
Hill was charged a week ago with felonious assault after she was accused of stabbing her boyfriend, 49, at their home.
Police arrested Hill at the scene and recovered a steak knife during the 10:45 p.m. call Oct. 29. The victim was taken to ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital.
A no-contact order was issued in court, and a not-guilty plea was entered for Hill. She posted $3,500 bond the next day.
