Rosedale Avenue stabbing appears to be self-defense


LIMA — A stabbing on North Rosedale Avenue over the weekend appears to be a case of self-defense, a detective said Tuesday.

Tonya Ward, 34, stabbed Michael Williams, 31, in the upper chest during an argument. Williams was taken to St. Rita’s Medical Center to be treated for the stab wound, said Lima Police Detective Steve Stechschulte.

Police officials likely will not charge Ward, and it’s possible Williams will face some type of charge related to a domestic violence incident, Stechschulte said.

The stabbing took place inside their home at 524 N. Rosedale Ave., at 9:15 p.m. Sunday, Stechschulte said.

The incident remained under investigation Monday, Stechschulte said.
