Middle school student expelled for stabbing classmate

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A Hoover middle school is expelled for the rest of the school year after stabbing a classmate with an X-acto knife.

The stabbing happened in December of last year when 13 year-old Ashley Carpenter stabbed a classmate in the abdomen and arm with the knife while the two were in an industrial tech class.

The 13 year-old boy was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

District spokesperson Sharon Miller confirms school board members voted Tuesday night during a closed session to expel Carpenter.

Police charged Carpenter with willful injury, a felony, following the incident.
