HARTFORD (AP/WTNH) – A Hartford police officer who was stabbed in the neck last week is out of the hospital.
Officer Jill Kidik was stabbed multiple times while responding to a disturbance at the Spectra apartment building.
Police said Chevoughn Augustin allegedly knocked her to the ground, and stabbed her with a large ceramic kitchen knife in the neck while placing her in a choke hold. Two nearby maintenance workers disarmed Augustin.
The 39-year-old has been in Hartford Hospital since May 17. She was released on Friday morning.
Augustin was charged with attempted murder, and is being held on $2 million bail.
