COURTLAND—A Windsor woman accused of stabbing a Franklin girl after an argument over a guy on Facebook faces up to five years in prison after pleaded guilty to a lesser felony charge on Tuesday.

Sentencing for Nikkol Wade, 18, will be April 3 in Southampton County Circuit Court. Wade pled guilty to unlawful wounding.

Wade and the then 16-year-old victim had been arguing through text messages and online before Wade went to the victim’s Norfleet Street home on April 19, said Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Toni Colvin.

“She came upon the defendant and two others,” Colvin told the court.

“Gray noticed Wade had a knife and threw the first punch when a fight ensued,” Colvin said.

When the fight had ended, Gray got up to walk away and that’s when Wade stabbed her in the arm.

“She lost a significant amount of blood,” Colvin said.

Wade’s attorney, Richard Railey Jr. said Franklin Police found two knives at the scene.

Colvin asked that Wade’s bond be revoked, but Judge Carl Eason denied that request. Wade will be allowed to remain on bond through sentencing.
