COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - A 20-year-old Columbus woman has been accused of stabbing her brother while he was sleeping.

Police report arresting Alicia Martinez on Wednesday evening. She’s charged with attempted murder and a related weapons count. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.

Court documents say 33-year-old Rogelio Barrios told officers that when he awoke in his bedroom during the stabbing July 11, he found his sister standing by his bed, holding an 8-inch boning knife. The documents say he was stabbed six times, suffering wounds in his chest, arms and a hand.

Police say Martinez doesn’t live at Barrios’ home.
