Do not dump her into prison. Some anger classes would do and some first aid classes, just in case she gets mad at her next boyfriend! Concentrate on tourniquets. Not joking.

Not much information in this story, but was this in self-defense? If it was, then why is she being charged at all and if it wasn't why is she getting off so lightly. The story makes it sound like the guy deserved to be stabbed. What's the real story here?

Chicacyber - the man is dead.

WhatsTheRealStoryHere- why don't you research it? If I recall correctly, she called the cops to remove him, during an argument, then when the cops arrived, she claimed that he'd left. Then, she called again to say that she'd cut him. I don't recall anything in the media stating that he was violent with her, or that she was being threatened, etc. But certainly the details of their background haven't been made public.
