A Hannibal woman charged with stabbing her boyfriend multiple times in December 2016 will appear for a jury trial in April.
Victoria E. Norell, of Hannibal, appeared before Judge David Mobley in the Marion County Courthouse in Hannibal on Monday, Jan. 8. Jennifer Richardson represented the defendant. Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton represented the state. Mobley scheduled a one-day jury trial for Norell beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday, April 19. A pre-trial conference is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 20.
Norell faces three charges relating to a Dec. 3, 2016, incident in which she allegedly stabbed Zac Meyer at least twice with a blade. She has been charged with felony counts of domestic assault, armed criminal action and second-degree attempted murder.
Norell allegedly told police she thought people living at 421 Washington St. — a home she shared with Meyer and other residents — planned to move her to a “residential care facility.” Norell said she heard voices that told her to find a knife and “kill” Meyer.
She remains incarcerated in the Marion County Jail with a $100,000 cash-only bond.
