Youngstown woman sentenced to probation in stabbing death

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Youngstown woman will serve five years of probation in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

Autumn Hines, 20, was charged with murder, voluntary manslaughter and felonious assault. But, she pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter after attorneys detailed a history of abuse at the hands of Hines’ boyfriend.

Police say Hines stabbed 23-year old Rashad Bailey in the chest after he punched her.

Police said the two were in a relationship and had children together. Records indicate officers were called at least twice last year because of domestic violence complaints Hines made against Bailey, where she said he punched and shoved her during arguments but she never followed through with criminal charges.
