NORTH LAWRENCE — A North Lawrence woman was jailed after allegedly stabbing her husband during a domestic dispute Sunday.

State police charged Melissa A. Francis, 42, of 15 Grove St., with a felony count of second-degree assault and a misdemeanor count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Troopers said the charges stem from an investigation into a domestic dispute at Mrs. Francis’s residence in which she allegedly stabbed her husband, Ervin E. Francis III, in the upper left thigh with a paring knife. The victim was transported to Massena Memorial Hospital for treatment, troopers said.

Mrs. Francis was arraigned in Lawrence Town Court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. She was released on her own recognizance Tuesday morning on a court order out of that court.
