A Mahaffey woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend on New Year's Eve waived her right to a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Jerome Nevling at yesterday's session of Centralized Court held at the Clearfield County Jail.
Robin E. Srock, 48, is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, disorderly conduct and harassment.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Dec. 31 at approximately 10:50 p.m. state police responded to 237 W. Main St., Mahaffey, for a reported stabbing.
Upon arrival, police spoke to the victim, a 43-year-old Mahaffey man, who said he was dating the defendant and they got into an argument.
He said she followed him into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the chest area. He was transported to the Altoona Regional Health System Trauma Center for treatment.
Timothy Greer of Punxsutawney and Valerie Davis of Mahaffey also stated they saw the two engaged in a verbal altercation when Srock grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest area.
The victim had two wounds to his upper chest and police found a 13½-inch knife with blood on it by the back door.
Srock told police that while she was at the residence, someone spiked her tea causing her to "feel funny" and drink two glasses of wine, which were also spiked. She was then grabbed in the throat area and her head bounced off the floor and "people just jumped on her."
She then grabbed the knife and stabbed the victim. Someone then told her to hurry up and leave the cops are coming. As she was running out the door someone handed her cell phone to her and she left.
Srock is incarcerated in CCJ in lieu of $100,000 straight bail.
In other cases, a Curwensville woman accused of selling drugs to an undercover state trooper waived her right to a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Richard Ireland.
Shaolin R. Caldwell, 29, is charged in two cases. In the first case she is charged with manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver and criminal use of a communication facility.
In the second case she is charged with criminal conspiracy/manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver and criminal use of a communication facility.
According to the affidavit of probable cause on May 5 at approximately 1 p.m. an informant arranged the purchase of Buprenorphine (suboxone) from the defendant at her boyfriend's apartment behind Bob's Army & Navy in Clearfield.
The state trooper and the confidential informant arrived at the apartment but Caldwell was not there.
The CI called Caldwell who said she had to drop her boyfriend off at work but said they could meet at Snappy's in Lawrence Township.
The trooper and the CI met the defendant at Snappy's at 4:45 p.m. Caldwell got in the front passenger side of the undercover police vehicle and the CI got in back.
Caldwell pulled out a prescription pill bottle and the trooper noticed Caldwell's name was on it. She counted out five orange pills. The trooper asked if he could have five more but she replied she could only give him seven. She handed him the seven pills and the trooper paid her $140 in official funds before Caldwell returned to her vehicle.
On May 31 Caldwell contacted the undercover state trooper with a text message to set up the sale of suboxone pills the next day.
On June 1 at 2 p.m. she texted the trooper saying she was late and asked if she could meet him at 2:30 p.m. at the truck stop. She said she only had a five-day supply of suboxone but would sell him some.
At 2:50 p.m. the trooper arrived at the truck stop and pulled up to the vehicle Srock was riding in. She handed him two suboxone pills and the trooper paid her and the male who was driving $30 and returned to his vehicle.
Caldwell is incarcerated in the CCJ in lieu of $50,000 straight bail on each of the two cases.
