Lynsey Kieffer

A Carson City woman accused of stabbing her paramour’s ex-girlfriend pleaded guilty Tuesday.

Lynsey Kieffer, 21, entered a guilty plea before Judge Jim Wilson to attempted battery causing substantial bodily harm in the Oct. 3 assault.

According to the arrest report, the 21-year-old victim was in the parking lot of a Carson Street casino around 2 a.m. when she saw her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend, Kieffer. The two women got into a fistfight, and Kieffer allegedly stabbed the victim. Then Kieffer left on foot while the victim got a ride to the hospital from a friend, according to the arrest report.

When a deputy questioned the victim at the hospital she initially lied about the incident, saying she was jumped by a stranger. But upon further questioning she admitted what happened. Casino surveillance footage also captured the assault. Kieffer will be sentenced Dec. 28.
