Woman Faces Battery Charges After Party Stabbing
LAS CRUCES, NM — A Saturday night party resulted in a stabbing early Sunday morning stabbing by 24-year-old Delilah Ramirez, police said.
Police responded to a disturbance call at the party on Ash Court for the second time early Sunday and discovered a 32-year-old man had been stabbed in the back.
According to the report, several people were at the home celebrating a wedding that took place a week earlier. Shortly before midnight a physical altercation took place between several partygoers.

Ramirez was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center.
