Woman Suspected Of Stabbing Boyfriend With Beer Bottle Still Not Charged

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4)- The woman police said stabbed her ex-boyfriend with a beer bottle still hasn’t been charged with a crime. Azura Lakin appeared in court on Thursday.

The man, Shaun Cassidy, died from his injuries over the weekend.

Lakin, 20, was arrested a week and a half ago for investigation of second degree assault. She is out on bond.

Another hearing was set for next week as prosecutors consider what, if any, charges to file.

According to the arrest affidavit, Lakin told police she had been fighting with Cassidy and hit him twice with a beer bottle because he broke her cell phone.

She said it happened in the hallway just outside her apartment.

Lakin told the officer, “It felt different” when she hit Cassidy with the bottle the second time.

Prosecutors are considering whether Lakin was defending herself, which would clear her under Colorado’s “Make My Day” law.
