Woman arrested after alleged stabbing


A report that a woman had been stabbed Sunday sent police to an address on the east side of Pine Bluff where they arrested another woman who was allegedly responsible.

Erika Curry, 23, allegedly stabbed Stacey Slack during a fight between the two, Detective Marsha Oliver said in a probable-cause affidavit presented in court Monday.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said that when police arrived at 3605 Missouri St., they found Slack on the floor bleeding from a wound to the head, and she was taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Oliver said that when Curry was interviewed, she admitted getting into a fight with Slack, but denied having a knife or stabbing Slack.

Kizer said Curry had previously been convicted of misdemeanor third-degree domestic battery in 2012, and has a pending third-degree domestic battery allegation stemming from an incident earlier this year.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $10,000 bond for Curry after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second-degree battery.

Curry was ordered to have no contact with Slack until the case is settled.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Curry.
