Laprincea Elease Bell was arrested and charged with second-degree domestic violence-knife after police responded to an edged weapon assault call at Henry Green Apartments.
“Once officers arrived on scene, they located a male victim suffering a stab wound to the chest area,” said Dothan Police Lt.

Ms. Bell fled the area before law enforcement arrived, but was later apprehended at a residence located in the 900 block of South Alice Street.”
According to Watkins, Bell and the victim were involved in a relationship.

The victim’s wounds are not life threatening. Bell is out of jail on a $5,000.
