A Sandusky woman was arrested Thursday night after she allegedly tried to stab her brother with a kitchen knife.

Sparkle Latoya Yvonne Miller, 32, of the 1400 block of Clinton St., was charged with felonious assault and domestic violence.

Sandusky police went to the Clinton Street home of Miller’s sister shortly after 9 p.m., after the woman reported a dispute between her two siblings, according to a Sandusky police report.

Both Miller and her brother had left the house by the time officers arrived, but Miller’s sister briefed police on the detailsof the fight, the report said.

Miller and her brother had been at their sister’s house most of the evening when out of nowhere, Miller stood up from the couch and walked into the kitchen, the report said. When she returned to the living room, Miller allegedly had a kitchen knife in hand.

Miller allegedly jumped on her brother and tried to stab him, the report said. Her sister stepped in and tried to wrestle the knife from her grip, to no avail.

At that point, Miller ran from the house, still carrying the knife. Her brother left the house, too, because he was upset over the incident, the report said.

Miller’s brother avoided injuries only because he was wearing a heavy flannel jacket when he was assaulted, the report said.

Officers arrested Miller at her home nearby. She refused to say where she stashed the knife, and officers were unable to find it after searching the home.

Miller refused to comment on the night’s events, and officers were unable to question her brother, as they were not able to locate him, the report said.

Miller was taken to the Erie County jail and held without bond.



Here we go again with another "unstable" person. When are people going to start taking responsiblity for their actions. Keep her in jail until she has calmed down and then make her stay another month or two. Better that then spend a lifetime in jail for murder.


what makes you think she's NOT unstable?


or will ever calm down?


Unassumer: That was satire. I just figure that she will claim mental illness. That's what most irresponsible people do when they are caught doing something stupid. And, if she can't ever calm down, why do they make people go to anger management class if it doesn't work?


Sparkle Latoya ? I'd stab myself if I was named that !


Maybe you should tell us your name and let us decide if you should stab yourself anyway!
