CROWN POINT | A Merrillville woman on Wednesday was acquitted of two more serious charges but convicted of battery for stabbing a woman at a Gary bar.

Jacqueline Cox, 41, was found not guilty of attempted murder and aggravated battery after a trial in Lake Superior Court.

Cox was accused of stabbing a woman multiple times during an encounter Aug. 6, 2010, in Shaw's Bar, 1127 Massachusetts St., Gary.

Court documents show witnesses told police Cox stabbed the woman with a pair of scissors. The woman suffered a collapsed lung and required 33 stitches for wounds in the breast, neck, chest and shoulder.

The stabbing occurred about 1 a.m. after the woman arrived to drop off a cake for a birthday party, court records state.

Cox is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 5 on two counts of battery. She faces a maximum sentence of eight years on each count.
