Batavia woman charged in stabbing
BATAVIA – A Batavia woman has been charged with stabbing two men Sunday morning in the 0-100 block of North VanNortwick Street.
The two men, a 19-year-old and a 34-year-old, sustained non-life threatening injuries. Diane J. Romano, 37, of the 0-100 block of North VanNortwick Street, has been charged with aggravated domestic battery, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, all felonies.
Romano was also charged with domestic battery which causes bodily harm, domestic battery with physical contact and unlawful use of weapons and possession of a knife with intent to use, all misdemeanors.
The charges result from a family disturbance between Romano and the two victims, police said.
"It was just a family fight that escalated," Batavia Police Detective Kevin Bretz said. He did not know what kind of knife Romano had in her possession.
Romano is being held at the Kane County Jail on a $50,000 bond. Her next court date is set for Wednesday.
