    An Ottumwa woman is facing a felony charge after police say she stabbed another women twice Wednesday.

    Around 2 p.m., Ottumwa police officers arrested Beth Browning, 36, at her home on north Weller Street.

    Court records show the victim was trying to retrieve a few items from Browning's front porch. That's when police say Browning stabbed the woman in her arm, and stomach.

    The woman sustained a small cut to her right forearm. Investigators say the knife did not puncture through the victim's clothing when Browning took a stab at her stomach.

    Lt. Jason Bell tells KTVO the two women are acquaintances.

    Browning is charged with Willful Injury, a Class D Felony. She remains in custody at the Wapello County Jail. Her bond is set at $5,000, cash or surety.
