An Aberdeen woman who stabbed her boyfriend in the neck with a steak knife during an argument has been given more time behind bars.
Twenty-four-year-old Crystal Wettengel served about eight months in jail after pleading guilty to aggravated assault about a year ago. Wettengel has now admitted to violating terms of her probation, and she has been sentenced to serve four years in prison with credit for the time she already has served.
She will eligible for parole after serving half of her sentence.
Wettengel initially faced an attempted murder charge in the stabbing. Authorities say the knife narrowly missed an artery that supplies blood to the head.
