Bond set in alleged stabbing incident


A $10,000 bond was set Monday for a woman who allegedly threw a knife at a man Saturday, striking him in the back.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Kendra Culclager, 36, with second-degree domestic battery.

Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said Culclager was arrested after police were sent to the emergency room at Jefferson Regional Medical Center where Antoine Shaw was being treated for a stab wound.

Detective Scott Norton said in a probable cause affidavit that Shaw, 41, of Little Rock, reported that he had gone to Culclager’s apartment in the 2800 block of Edgewood Drive to get some of his clothing and while there, he and Culclager got into an argument.

Pugh said Shaw told police he followed Culclager into the kitchen and the argument continued, and when he bent over to pick up a clothes basket, he felt a stabbing pain in his back. He allegedly told police he pulled the knife out and drove himself to the hospital.

Norton said in the affidavit that Shaw received a wound to the lower left side of the back.

In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Culclager, who Pugh said had no prior convictions or pending charges, to have no contact with Shaw until the case is settled.

Culclager said she would hire her own attorney.
