One Martin County woman faces several charges after Kentucky State Police responded to a complaint on Thanksgiving.

According to the arrest citation, 38-year old Katherine Stepp was arrested following an argument with her boyfriend, Adam Jude, that resulted in her child being stabbed. Witnesses told police the couple was inebriated and arguing.

"Came to a Thanksgiving here in Floyd County and there was an argument between them," said Assistant Floyd County Attorney Tyler Green. "During the argument, at some point, a young child was stabbed in the leg."

Witnesses noticed that the baby's calf was bleeding and a wound was later discovered. The extent of the child's injuries is not known at this time.

Green said Stepp was arrested and Jude is "still at large pending charges."

Stepp is charged with assault, wanton endangerment, resisting arrest and public intoxication. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Floyd County on Monday, Dec. 9.
