A conversation with her father about stars eventually led to the arrest of 22-year-old Nadja Svenson.
According to reports, Svenson and her father, Robert, were outside looking at the stars when they got into an argument about the location of the Big Dipper and other constellations. Svenson reportedly got so angry with her father that she grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him in the chest.
Police arrived at the home a short time later responding to a call of a domestic dispute and found Svenson’s father injured.
“As the officers made their way through the home, they found the father on the floor holding a homemade bandage to his chest,” said Londonberry Detective Christopher Olson.
After questioning Svenson, police arrested the young woman and charged her with felony second-degree assault. Svenson was held on $5,000 bail but was later released. The woman allegedly claims that her father accidentally ran into the knife, but that still remains to be seen.
Robert Svenson was taken to a local hospital and was treated for his non-life threatening injuries. Nadja is set to appear in court on Jan. 2.
