ELYRIA — An Elyria woman was recovering Sunday night after police said she was stabbed by another Elyria woman about 5 a.m. Sunday at a home at 1152 Garden St.

Ashley Plues, 23, of the 200 block of Winckles Street, was in good condition at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, according to a nursing supervisor.

Dominique Barbee is accused of stabbing Plues in the head, hip and arm with scissors during a fight over a boyfriend, said police spokesman Capt. Chris Costantino.
