A Jefferson City woman faces felony charges, accused of stabbing another woman in the face over $200 in bingo winnings. The argument started Sunday night as three people were driving home after playing bingo in Moberly.

Ashland police say the driver, 51-year old Margaret Thomas, pulled over on Highway 63 and stabbed a passenger in the backseat with scissors. The victim needed 32 stitches in her cheek.

Thomas is in the Boone County Jail on $150,000 bond. She was charged Monday in Boone County Court with one count of felony domestic assault and one count of felony armed criminal action.
