Stabbing Suspect Pleads to Reduced Charge
A 43-year-old St. Clair Shores woman plead guilty Tuesday to domestic violence for stabbing her boyfriend in her house on Erben.
A 43-year-old St. Clair Shores woman who stabbed her boyfriend during an argument while the couple was painting the interior of her house on Erben plead guilty in 40th District Court Tuesday to domestic violence.
Christine Holstine reportedly stabbed her boyfriend after the couple got in an argument March 3 while painting the living and dining rooms of her home in the 21000 block of Erben.
According to reports, what allegedly started as "joking" turned violent after he rolled a paint roller across her head. She reportedly then splashed paint on him and the confrontation escalated between the couple to the point where Holstine stabbed Kirk Glosser with a kitchen knife.
“I stabbed him in the arm,” Holstine replied when asked by the judge what happened on March 3.
During the proceedings, her attorney Jason Malkiewicz stated that her boyfriend was "requesting that she be let out on bond."
She was originally charged with assault with intent to do great bodily, but plead guilty to domestic violence Tuesday before Judge Joseph Oster. She will be sentenced April 12, and is free on a $10,000 personal bond but must wear a GPS tether. At sentencing, Holstine could face up to 93 days in jail.
Glosser, 42, who was hospitalized and released, was charged with domestic violence. His pre-trial hearing was adjourned Tuesday to allow for his attorney to review police reports and information about the case. He is free on personal bond and will return to court April 2.
