An Ithaca woman who sued the Ithaca School District for a million dollars over claims that her daughter faced racial discrimination and harassment has been charged with assault and weapons possession after she and her boyfriend stabbed each other.
Ithaca Police say 45-year-old Amelia Kearney and 54-year-old David Raimon were involved in a domestic dispute.
Officers responded to the couple’s South Geneva Stree apartment around 2:30 Sunday morning.
Kearney told police that Raimon stabbed her in the neck. Officers observed at a one-inch laceration near her neck.
Raimon, who had called the police, was located in a nearby apartment. He was bleeding from cuts to his hands and face.
Kearney was transported by Bangs Ambulance to a nearby hospital and later taken by helicopter to a regional trauma center.
Later she was charged with a felony count of assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. She was arraigned and released.
Raimon was charged with the same arraigned and sent to the Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
Kearney was arrested last September and charged with a felony count of assault after she hit an unidentified victim in the head with a steel stove grate.
Kearney settled her lawsuit with the school district in 2013. She was paid $200 thousand dollars.
