Beverly woman charged in stabbing


Grimes, the prosecutor, suggested that he was simply trying to protect the woman.

But defense lawyer Paul Moraski said the man’s account “makes sense.”

“If you were going to stab someone, you’d probably do it more than once, and you’d probably also see some defensive wounds,” said Moraski.

Singh denied the prosecution’s request to hold Ward, releasing her on her own recognizance while the case is pending. She’s due back in court April 4.
