Woman Arrested for Attempted Murder in Laramie
Laramie police this week arrested a woman for attempted second-degree murder after she stabbed her boyfriend.
Terry K. F. Goodman, 40, was arrested and charged Monday with attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault and battery, and domestic battery. The attempted murder and aggravated assault charges are felonies, the domestic battery charge is a misdemeanor.
At approximately 9:14 p.m. on Dec. 24, Laramie police responded to the Motel 8 on Boswell Dr. to reports of a stabbing.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, Goodman and the victim had been arguing most of the evening about their respective children, including about alleged derogatory statements made towards Goodman's daughter and grandson by the victim. Both said they had been drinking.
Goodman admitted to police that while the victim stood, back turned, with the door open to smoke a cigarette, she stabbed him three times with a butcher knife - twice in the right upper arm and again above the right wrist as the victim turned around.
Goodman told police she stabbed the victim because he made her mad. She said she stabbed him in the arm because she had no intention to kill the victim. She later indicated that she wanted to "help him end it" because of his battle with cancer.
Police learned that Goodman tried to leave after the victim called 9-1-1, but her car would not start so she decided to wait outside for police to arrive. She said to officers at the scene, "he called the police like a p---- instead of letting me leave."
The victim was taken to Ivinson Memorial Hospital for treatment where he recieved stitches for the three wounds.
As of Dec. 27, a bond has not been set for Goodman and she remains in custody at the Albany County Detention Center.
