Vermont police make arrest in 2016 fatal stabbing

March 4, 2018

BROWNINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police have charged a Brownington woman in a fatal stabbing that occurred nearly two years ago.

Police say 46-year-old Jennifer Simard is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Kevin Smith on March 28, 2016. She’s due in court Monday.

Police say Simard called 911 and Smith was dead when officers arrived.

The medical examiner ruled that he’d been stabbed in the chest, but it wasn’t until several months later that the death was determined to be a homicide.

Police made the arrest Friday, and Simard was held Sunday at Northern State Correctional Facility on $100,000 bail. It’s not known if she has a lawyer.
