Woman accused of stabbing boyfriend in court; bond must be set by different judge

An Augusta woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend made her initial court appearance Monday.

Nasheda W. Jackson, 51, appeared in Richmond County Magistrate Court where she was informed of the contents of the warrant against her and of her rights. Jackson is accused of aggravated assault.

On Thursday evening around 10:50 p.m., a Keron Way resident investigating why her dog was barking heard moaning and saw a large amount of blood outside 1578 Keron Way. She called 911. Inside the home, officers found Melvin Colquitt Jr., 52, with multiple stab wounds. He told officers Jackson had stabbed him after they argued. He managed to get away and barricade himself in a bedroom, according to the incident report.

Judge Stephen Shepard informed Jackson he could not set bond in her case because the incident was family violence. Bond must be addressed by a Superior Court judge.
