Cops: California Woman, 70, Stabbed Neighbor, 75, In Neck During Retirement Home Fight

An elderly California woman is jailed on an attempted murder charge after allegedly stabbing a 75-year-old female neighbor in the neck during an argument at a retirement home, cops report.

The confrontation Friday night at St. Francis Manor in Sacramento resulted in the arrest of Barbara Gayl Holland, a 70-year-old retired nurse who is being held in the county jail without bail.

While Sacramento police reported that the septuagenarians were involved in an “ongoing neighbor dispute,” the nature of that disagreement is unclear (though some neighbors believe that the quarrel may have involved a cat).

Seen in the above mug shot, Holland, who was arrested in her apartment, is scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court tomorrow. The victim, cops reported, “sustained a serious injury that required medical treatment at an area hospital,” but she is expected to survive.
