Woman Arrested For Stabbing Ex-Husband

Las Cruces – Las Cruces Police arrested a woman Friday morning after learning that she stabbed her ex-husband several times causing him to be transported to a local hospital.

Gabriela M. Shaw, 27, of the 400 block of McFie Avenue, is charged with three counts of aggravated battery against a household member and one count of battery.

Detectives learned that Shaw and her 29-year-old ex-husband were at her home late Thursday evening when, at some point, she became upset after looking through his cell phone's call history. Detectives discovered that Shaw then pulled out a knife and started swinging at her ex, striking him at least three times.

The victim left the home and got a ride to the Las Cruces Police Department where he was interviewed by officers. He was transported to Mountain View Regional Medical Center with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Shaw was located by officers at her home and subsequently transported to the Dona Ana County Detention Center with bond set at $15,000.
