HANNIBAL, Mo. -- A Hannibal woman accused of stabbing a man twice in the chest in 2016 will go to trial in April.

Court records show that Victoria E. Norell's case is set for a one-day trial April 19. Norell, 30, faces charges of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree domestic assault and armed criminal action.

She was arrested Dec. 3, 2016, after Hannibal police responded to a report of an assault at a residence in the 400 block of Washington Street. Upon arrival, officers said they found a 24-year-old man suffering from two stab wounds to the chest. Police said a witness pointed out Norell, who was across the street when officers arrived, as the person responsible, police said.

Norell pleaded not guilty Oct. 12. An earlier mental evaluation found Norell fit to stand trial.

She is being held in the Marion County Jail on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
