An Adams County judge denied a bond reduction request from a Quincy woman charged in a stabbing.
Lacinda White, 24, was arrested May 20 in connection to the stabbing of 39-year-old Michael Roberts. Quincy police said she stabbed Roberts in the neck.
White appeared in court Tuesday morning where a judge denied her request to reduce a $50,000 bond.
White is due back in court June 10 for a preliminary hearing.
The incident took place about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 20 at a Quincy Housing Authority apartment complex.
When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered Roberts was stabbed and was located at 8th and Elm Street.
Officers found another man, Christopher Chapman, inside the residence. Police say he told them that White had fled the scene.
After reviewing video surveillance, police officers said that they determined that White had not fled and was hiding in an upstairs bedroom.
Roberts and White had a dating relationship, according to police.
White is charged with aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon.
Authorities also took Chapman, 19, into custody from the scene. Chapman is charged with obstructing justice.
