A Williamsburg woman has been indicted by a Whitley County Grand Jury on two charges of assault in connection with the August stabbings of two men, according to Whitley Circuit Court documents.
Teresa G. Sharp, 44, faces two counts of first-degree assault and a third charge of being a persistent felony offender.
