Tuesday, Oct 30, 2018

A Pennsylvania woman is in jail on attempted murder charges after stabbing her husband over his use of medical marijuana. Adams County Assistant District Attorney Miranda Blazek announced the allegations against Palma A. Conrad, 70, in a press release on Tuesday. Conrad is charged with attempted murder, attempted homicide, and two counts of aggravated assault.

“It is alleged that Conrad stabbed her husband multiple times in the chest, face, neck, and mouth intending to kill him,” Blazek said.

According to a police affidavit filed by Officer Anthony Gilberto of the Littlestown Police Department on Monday, Conrad stabbed her husband, Richard Conrad, because of his desire to use medical marijuana, saying she was “sick of it.”

Gilberto had responded to a 911 call from the Conrads’ house and as he arrived saw Mrs. Conrad exiting the home with a black eye and blood on her hands, arms, and face. She told Gilberto she had stabbed her husband, who was inside the house, according to the police complaint. Mrs. Conrad was taken into custody and placed in a police car.
