Charges Filed Against Florissant Woman Who Stabbed GM Worker

Alicia Turner

A Florissant woman who used her husband’s General Motors I.D. to clock in at the Wentzville Assembly plant Wednesday night and attack a GM employee has been charged with assault, armed criminal action, and burglary.

According to court documents, Alicia J. Turner, 27, was armed with a stun gun and a knife. She first attacked the victim, who was operating a forklift, with the stun gun before stabbing her five times in the legs, arms, and chest. Turner told the victim that she knew she was sexually involved with Turner’s husband. Turner then fled the scene.

Turner was identified by the victim and by several other employees at the plant. The victim admitted to police that she had an affair with Turner’s husband.

Before turning herself in to police, Turner canceled an appointment, saying that she expected to be in jail, and even sent a link to a news story about the attack.

Bond was set at $200,000, cash only, 10 percent not authorized.
