Woman, 29, is indicted in stabbing of her father

16 are named in 19 new indictments

A Craft’s Colly woman has been indicted on charges of second-degree assault, public intoxication and being a persistent felony offender in the first degree after she allegedly stabbed her father in the back.

Kimberly R. Boykin, also known as Kimberly Nicole Boykin, 29, of 487 Thickett Branch at Ermine, was arrested September 17 when Kentucky State Police Trooper Brandon Watts saw her walking along Craft’s Colly Road while he was responding to the stabbing complaint.

Boykin is one of 16 people named in 19 felony indictments returned late last week by the Letcher County Grand Jury. According to the citation, the 911 dispatch center at KSP Post 13 in Hazard received a third-party call from Janice Banks about 12:48 a.m. on the night of September 17 reporting that a man named Richard had been stabbed by a woman at his home Thickett Branch. Watts wrote that on his way to the house, he saw Kimberly Boykin walking near the intersection of Thickett Branch and Craft’s Colly road, “sweating profusely and carrying a backpack and a flashlight.”

Watts said he stopped to talk to her, and noticed she had dilated pupils and “did not seem to be in her right mind.” He said she could not answer questions without delay, and appeared to be under the influence of heroin or other opiates.

Watts arrested her on an out- standing warrant, and she denied stabbing anyone. He said when they arrived at the house, no one answered the door, and Kimberly Boykin said she believed her father went to the hospital.

Watts said when he found Richard Boykin at the Whitesburg ARH Hospital, Richard Boykin gave a recorded statement saying his daughter stabbed him after an argument, as he was about to leave the house. Watts said Richard Boykin had been wearing two T-shirts and a hoodie, and all three were punctured. He said Richard Boykin had a one-inch diameter stab wound in his right side of his back.
