Woman pleads guilty in Arcadia Boulevard knife attack

January 3, 2019

KINGMAN — A Nevada woman pleaded guilty Friday to charges stemming from the stabbing of her boyfriend in September.

Kaley Anne Mansfield, 24, of Henderson pleaded guilty to aggravated assault by domestic violence. She had been charged with a second count of aggravated assault. She is being held in custody without bond.

Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle will sentence Mansfield to prison from two to 83/4 years. The judge will sentence her Feb. 5. Carlisle has been assigned criminal cases previously assigned to Superior Court Judge Richard Weiss, who retired as of Monday.

Shortly before 5 p.m. Sept. 20, Mansfield went to a 57-year-old man’s Arcadia Boulevard home in Bullhead City. They had been romantically involved, according to Bullhead City police.

Mansfield pulled out a knife from her purse without warning and began to stab the victim as well as choking him, police reported.

The victim was able to escape to a neighbor’s home. He was treated and eventually released from a Bullhead City hospital for stab wounds to his abdomen and torso areas. Mansfield fled the scene in her car.

Mansfield, formerly of Bullhead City, was arrested the next day in Henderson on a felony warrant issued by the Bullhead City Police Department.

Mansfield also was arrested in September 2015 after a disturbance at a Kingman business office. She assaulted office staff as well as a Kingman police officer. She pleaded guilty in November 2015 to attempted aggravated assault and was sentenced to three years on probation.
