VERNON WOMAN ARRESTED FOR DOUBLE STABBING LAST WEEK

VERNON WOMAN ARRESTED FOR DOUBLE STABBING LAST WEEK

WAMAC, IL — A 39-year-old Vernon woman has been arrested in connection with the stabbing last week of two people at a home in Vernon. Heidi Wynn was arrested Monday for allegedly stabbing her 48-year-old estranged husband Brian Thompson and a 43-year-old Centralia man.

Both men were taken to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia before being airlifted to St. Louis area hospitals for treatment of their wounds. Thompson was stabbed multiple times and has since been released from the hospital. The other man, however, remains hospitalized, according to the Marion County Sheriff’ Department. Deputy Sgt. Kevin Cripps, says the stabbings occurred around 10:25 p.m. Thursday, April 14 at a home in the 600 block of West Vine in Vernon. Cripps believes the stabbing was the result of an earlier argument between Thompson and Wynn.

Wynn was at large until her arrest Monday in Salem on charges of Class 2 felony aggravated domestic battery and Class 3 aggravated battery with the use of a deadly weapon. She was formally charged with those offenses Tuesday in Marion County Court. This is the second time in less than 10 years that Wynn has been accused of stabbing her ex-husband.

Both Wynn and Thompson were hospitalized in 2013, following another alleged altercation during which Thompson was reportedly stabbed in the chest with a pocket knife and Wynn was reportedly struck in the head with a baseball bat. Charges were never filed in that incident.
