A Charleston woman was arrested after police said she stabbed the father of her children and his girlfriend.
Kerry Harvey, 42, of Charleston has been charged with attempted murder and malicious wounding, police said.
Harvey allegedly stabbed Gary Turpin, 57, in the chest and Alice Early, 49, in the back.
Officers said Harvey and Turpin have two children together, and Early and Turpin are in a relationship. Harvey was apparently upset that Turpin had their children around Early and when she confronted the two of them about it, she ended up stabbing them, police said.
The stabbing happened about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at a home on Rugby Street on Charleston's East End.
Harvey and Turpin's two children, ages 9 and 13, were both inside the home at the time of the incident and were placed in the custody of Child Protective Services until another family member could pick them up.
Both Turpin and Early were taken to Charleston Area Medical Center General Hospital for treatment. Turpin was listed in serious, but stable condition and Early was listed in stable condition later Wednesday.
Harvey was arraigned in Kanawha County Magistrate Court on Wednesday, where bond was set at $20,000 cash only. She was transported to South Central Regional Jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Sept. 6.
