(Stillwater) — A Cushing woman who admitted Friday that she had stabbed a man on New Year’s Day of 2009 has been given a 180-day jail term as part of a plea bargain, court officials said Tuesday.

    Janie Lynn Anderson, 32, whose surname is listed on some court documents as Anderson-Hill, was taken into custody Friday to begin serving her sentence.

    When she is released, she will be on probation for four and one-half years for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, District Judge Donald Worthington ordered.

    She was originally scheduled to have a jury trial on Jan. 6, but she avoided that by accepting a plea bargain on the charge, which carried a possible penalty of a 10-year prison term, court records show.

    Her victim, David Scott Howard of Cushing, was stabbed in the chest with a small knife and treated at the Cushing Regional Hospital emergency room for his injury, which was not life-threatening, court records show.

    Cushing Deputy Police Chief Tully Folden wrote in an affidavit that when she was asked how Howard got his injury, she “hung her head, started to cry and said she had hit him in the chest with a ‘tool."”

    “I then asked her what kind of tool; she said a small brown pocket knife,” Folden, who was a police sergeant at the time, wrote in his affidavit.

    After she was arrested on New Year’s Day of 2009, two small pocket knives were found in her left rear pants pocket, the affidavit said.

    Howard told police that he had borrowed her vehicle earlier in the day and was gone only about 15 minutes to a friend’s house when she called wanting her vehicle back, the affidavit said.

    Howard said that he told her he would be back after he ate dinner with his friends, John and Stephanie Reese, the affidavit said.

    Howard said that she then walked to the Reeses’ residence where an argument ensued and Anderson-Hill left with her vehicle, the affidavit said.

    “Howard said after they were finished eating, the Reeses gave him a ride home,” the affidavit said.

    Howard said that when they pulled up to his residence, Anderson-Hill was waiting on him, pulled open the back door of the Reeses’ vehicle and started yelling at Howard, the affidavit said.

    “Howard said that Anderson-Hill then told him that she was going to kill him.

    “Howard said he was starting to get out of the vehicle at this point. Howard said that is when Anderson-Hill hit him in the chest.

    “Howard said that is when he felt blood running down his chest and knew that he had been stabbed.

    “Howard said that Stephanie Reese told Anderson-Hill to leave, and he was taken into the house where they attempted to clean the wound,” the affidavit said.

    Howard said that the stabbing occurred about three hours earlier around 5 p.m., the affidavit said.

    When the police officer asked Howard why he had not gone to the hospital, Howard said “he did not want to get anyone in trouble.

    “Howard said he was trying to help Anderson-Hill out, by giving her a place to stay and trying to get her electric turned back on,” the affidavit said.

    Howard said he had not seen the knife, the affidavit said.

    “After talking to everyone at the scene, I advised Howard that he needed to go to the hospital due to his injury, which he did,” Folden wrote in his affidavit.

    The Reeses gave a similar account of the stabbing to police, the affidavit said.
