Crime scene, investigation

CLEVELAND (AP) – Authorities say a woman repeatedly stabbed another at an Ohio church for wearing fur.

Cleveland Heights police say 35-year-old Meredith Lowell stabbed the victim in the arm and abdomen Wednesday afternoon.

Police say a man wrestled Lowell to the floor and held her until officers arrived. The victim remained hospitalized Thursday. Her condition was unclear.

Officials say the victim had taken children she was babysitting to a Presbyterian church for choir practice.

Police Chief Anne Mecklenburg says Lowell was previously charged with a knife attack on someone wearing fur last November in neighboring University Heights. That case is pending.

A telephone number to seek comment from Lowell’s attorney couldn’t be found.
