The victim was stabbed repeatedly while trying to fend off her efforts to take the phone. T. Turngren was holding the couple’s 15-month-old child at the time of the attack.

J. Tungren was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon – Family Violence and Endangering a Child – Criminal Negligence. She was transported to the Caldwell County Jail, and her bond was set at $50,000.
