SPARKS, NV - A woman is charged with attempted murder after a stabbing in Sparks.

SPD received a call just after 6PM Friday, August 1, 2014 that two women were involved in a stabbing on Merchant Street.

When officers arrived, they found two women in the apartment. One of the women had sustained multiple stab wounds to her neck and upper torso, while the other sustained stab wounds to her hands. Both were transported to Renown Medical Center by REMSA.

Police say their investigation indicates the victim, who nearly died, was attacked by 28-year-old Megan Pedro. The two had been in a romantic relationship, and police say Pedro got jealous over the victim's contact with another person.

Pedro was arrested for attempted murder and booked at the Washoe County Jail.
