The woman accused of stabbing her mother at General Motors’ Tech Center in Warren, Mich., was charged today with assault with intent to murder, according to a court official.
Chavonne Taylor, 32, was arraigned in 37th District Court and charged with assault and with carrying a weapon with unlawful intent, a court official said.
Taylor’s next court date is set for Feb. 23. She is being held on $500,000 bond.
Taylor allegedly stabbed her 52-year-old mother, who works at the Tech Center, in the neck, abdomen and back several times Wednesday. She is said to have walked into a lobby on the Tech Center campus, asking for her mother by name before stepping outside and stabbing her with a steak knife.
The altercation ended when parking valet Didarul Sarder pulled out a concealed handgun and pointed it at Taylor. After she stopped, Sarder called 911, and police arrived soon after.
Sarder, who has a concealed-weapons permit, was placed under paid suspension by his employer, Chicago-based contractor SP Plus, and will return to his position on Monday, a GM spokesman said in a statement.
"We understand that there were conflicting reports on his employment status with the valet vendor, but he was not terminated, just placed on paid suspension until the facts of the incident were investigated," GM spokesman Michael Albano said in a statement.
