KILLEEN (September 16, 2013)--A Killeen woman was sentenced in a Bell County District Court Monday after she earlier pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an incident in which a man was stabbed.

Christa Cherrell Thomas, 23, was sentenced to four years deferred adjudication probation, which means if she successfully completes her probation there will be no record of the conviction on her record, Assistant Bell County District Attorney Paul McWilliams said.

Thomas was arrested June 18 after she was identified as a suspect in the stabbing of a Killeen man at a local residence.

She has been held in the Bell County Jail since her arrest on a $100,000 bond, online jail records showed.

Killeen police were sent June 17 to a residence after a caller reported an assault and when they arrived they found a victim with stab wounds to his neck and abdomen.

The victim reported the man came to the residence to take the child back to the mother when the two began to argue.

During the argument, the victim said, the woman stabbed him, an arrest warrant affidavit said.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to an area hospital where he was treated for his injuries and later released.
