Woman arrested in Graysville, Tenn., Halloween stabbing

A 22-year-old Graysville, Tenn., woman was arrested for stabbing another woman in an abandoned parking lot Halloween night.

Brittany Sherrill was arrested an hour after Amanda Estep was found bleeding from her neck at her home off Burnett Street, said Graysville Police Chief Thomas Mahoney. Sherrill has been charged with aggravated assault, but her charges could be upgraded, Mahoney said.

Estep and Sherrill got into a fight in a closed restaurant parking lot around 9 p.m. Monday night, police said. That’s when police believe Sherrill began to stab the other woman four times, Mahoney said.

Estep was stabbed in her neck, twice in the chest and on her hands, he said. Afterwards, Sherrill fled and Estep walked about a block away to her home.
