A North Huntingdon woman will serve two years on probation after she pleaded guilty Friday to stabbing her boyfriend four times during an altercation over a spilled beer.

Vanessa Robinson, 29, was jailed in November on charges related to an incident at her home on Nov. 29, when James Gallone was stabbed in the neck, stomach, wrist and back.

According to court records, police said the two fought over the last can of Colt 45 and that Robinson stabbed Gallone with a butcher's knife after he spilled out the beer during the argument.

In court Friday, Robinson pleaded guilty to amisdemeanor count of reckless endangerment. She was sentenced by Westmoreland County Judge Al Bell to serve the probation term and six months on house arrest.

Assistant District Attorney Jim Hopson said charges of aggravated assault and simple assault were dismissed because of evidence issues related to a potential defense of self-defense.
