AUGUSTA — A city woman who once stabbed a man in the back will spend more than three years in prison after pleading guilty to threatening a woman with a knife.

Ann-Marie A. Meserve, 43, of Augusta, was arrested March 11 in Augusta on a charge of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon after police responded to a complaint on Swan Street.

Meserve, formerly of Waterville, was sentenced Wednesday at the Capital Judicial Center to two years in prison on that offense, and her probation on a previous aggravated assault conviction was revoked. She was ordered to serve 37 1/2 months in prison, which is to run concurrently with the new sentence.

Meserve has two prior aggravated assault convictions.

On Dec. 21, 2007, on Eastern Avenue in Augusta, she stabbed a man in the back with a steak knife during an altercation involving a number of people who were intoxicated. She ended up spending five years in prison for that offense because she was on probation at the time for a stabbing that had occurred Feb. 25, 2007, in Cumberland County.
