Woman Charged with Killing Mother’s Boyfriend
MAHANOY CITY — Authorities in Schuylkill County filed voluntary manslaughter and other charges against a woman who admits she stabbed and killed her mother’s boyfriend.
Kimberly Hons from Mahanoy City spoke with Newswatch 16 when the stabbing happened back in December. She told Newswatch 16 she never intended to kill Larry Quinn but says she did it in self-defense.
Hons said Quinn hit her mother and then attacked her in a home along East Mahanoy Street in Mahanoy City.
But Tuesday evening, prosecutors in Schuylkill County charged Hons in connection with the man’s death.
On 4/16/14, this story was updated to correct the relationship between the victim and the suspect. Quinn was the boyfriend of Hons’ mother, not Hons.
