ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP)— An Asheboro woman on trial for stabbing a woman in the neck was sentenced to five months in jail on Thursday.

The Asheboro Courier-Tribune reports that Teasha Elizabeth Rich, 31, was found guilty in Randolph County Superior Court of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Rich reportedly used a large pocket knife to stab Donna Lucas, 39, in the throat outside of the Quick Quality gas station at 316 S. Fayetteville St. on June 8, 2010.

Previous reports say the incident was caused after two cars almost hit each other in a parking lot. Lucas was in a car that pulled into the business and almost hit a car Rich was riding in.

The victim had to be airlifted to the hospital and has since been treated.

The paper reported that Rich was crying in court. She was sentenced by Judge Edwin Gregory and will also receive 60 months of probation.
