FAIRBANKS - A felony assault charge has been filed against a Fairbanks woman accused of stabbing her stepbrother in the leg with a butcher knife.
   
Police arrived to find the stepbrother bleeding in the living room and the woman, 31-year-old Lindsey Lee Preshaw, in the bedroom.
   
The newspaper reports that the stepbrother is also the father of the woman's two children.
   
Preshaw told investigators she acted in self-defense. A witness, however, said she had been walking down a hall with a butcher knife, saying she was going to kill the victim.
   
The stepbrother was taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital with an entry wound on the top of his calf and an exit wound on the bottom of his calf.
