WATERVILLE — A Moor Street woman who allegedly stabbed her neighbor in the stomach Tuesday night was charged with a felony after she was arrested Wednesday.

Ashley Boivin, 32, was arrested without incident around 12:30 p.m. at 16 Moor St., according to Deputy Chief William Bonney, of the Waterville police. She was charged with elevated aggravated assault, a class A felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison. Boivin’s bail was set at $5,000 cash and she was to be taken to Kennebec County jail in Augusta, he said. A charge is elevated when a person intentionally or knowingly causes serious bodily injury using a dangerous weapon.

The stabbing occurred during an argument on the street among several people, according to Bonney. He said there was no specific reason for Tuesday’s fight, and that there have been ongoing disputes in the neighborhood.

The confrontation between Boivin and the 21-year-old man turned physical, and she allegedly stabbed him and fled the scene, Bonney said. While police were looking for Boivin on Wednesday morning, they were told she might be at the Moor Street address, where she was arrested, Bonney said.

After Tuesday’s 6 p.m. stabbing, police charged three people at the same Moor Street location with assaulting a 19-year-old woman the trio believed had helped police in the stabbing investigation, according to Bonney. The woman suffered minor injuries, he said.

Colby Dyer, 26, who Bonney said was in a relationship with the 19-year-old, was arrested and charged with domestic violence assault, a class D misdemeanor. JennyLee McLean-Miller, 31, and Priscilla Pagliaroli, 20, were summoned and charged with assault, a class D crime. Booking photos of McLean-Miller and Pagliaroli were not available because they were summoned, not arrested.


Police would not release the name of the 21-year-old man whom Boivin allegedly stabbed. Both he and Boivin live on Moor Street, which is off Water Street in the city’s South End.

He was conscious and alert when he was taken Tuesday night to MaineGeneral Medical Center’s Thayer Center for Health in Waterville with wounds that Bonney said were not considered life-threatening. He then was transferred to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta, where he was in the critical care unit Wednesday, Bonney said.

Dyer is scheduled to appear Aug. 2 in Waterville District Court; McLean-Miller and Pagliaroli are to appear Oct. 4 in the same court. Boivin is scheduled to appear Aug. 22 in the Capital Area Judicial Center in Augusta.
