Eagle Point woman charged with attempted murder

Stabbing occurred during fight between two men in White City late Sunday

An Eagle Point woman faces an attempted murder charge after allegedly stabbing a man late Sunday in White City.

Samantha Kay Dietrich, 18, of Eagle Point, is being held in the Jackson County Jail for attempted murder, two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault. Dietrich’s bail is set at $100,000, according to Jackson County District Court documents.

Jackson County sheriff’s deputies responded to a fight between two men Sunday at 10:23 p.m. in the 7400 block of Gladstone Avenue.

The Sheriff’s Office reported that deputies first saw the victim — covered in blood — about a block away on Avenue A. He had multiple lacerations on his abdomen, and police applied pressure to the wounds until Mercy Flights medics arrived.

A third person — Dietrich — is suspected to have intervened in the fight by stabbing the victim multiple times with a small pocket knife. The victim underwent surgery at a local hospital and is in stable condition, according to the sheriff’s office.

Dietrich was arrested Monday for second-degree assault and the other counts were added later. The case will be presented to a Jackson County grand jury Thursday.
