70-year-old woman accused of stabbing nephew in Pointe Claire

A 70-year-old woman is facing an attempted murder charge following an altercation with her 24-year-old nephew at a Pointe Claire apartment a few days before Christmas.

Montreal police say on the morning on Dec. 21, the two were in an apartment on Aurora Ave. near Fairwood Ave., not far from the Cedar Park train station. Police say the young man suffered a stab wound to the back following some sort of conflict.

The 24-year-old man was conscious when he was brought to hospital. He received a few stitches for his wound a short time later.
