Local woman charged in domestic stabbing granted PR bail
NASHUA – A Superior Court judge Monday granted personal recognizance bail for 40-year-old Lizvette Orozco, who is facing three felony and six misdemeanor charges in a domestic incident in which she allegedly stabbed a man known to her.
Judge Jacalyn Colburn ordered Orozco, of 1 Highland Place, to have no contact with the alleged victim, and stay at least 300 feet away from him.
Police arrested Orozco, who was represented at Monday’s bail hearing by Attorney Amanda Steenhuis, on Friday, initially charging her with one count of domestic violence-related first-degree assault, a Class A felony.
Police said the charge accuses Orozco of stabbing the man during a domestic incident. Police were called at about 5:30 a.m. Friday to a local residence, the location of which wasn’t specified in court.
The man was transported to a local hospital for treatment, police said, adding that his injuries weren’t considered life-threatening.
Officers located Orozco a short time later and charged her with the first-degree assault offense.
Once she was in custody, police said, members of the department’s Special Investigations Division furthered the investigation into the circumstances of the incident.
Based on their findings, police said, they charged Orozco with eight additional offenses, to include two additional counts of domestic violence-related first-degree assault, Class A felonies; four counts of domestic violence – simple assault, Class A misdemeanors; and two counts of criminal mischief, also Class A misdemeanors.
