AMHERST TWP. – A stabbing on Tuesday evening left one woman dead from her wounds early Wednesday, according to the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office.

Monica Freedman, 24, died at about midnight Wednesday at EMH Amherst Hospital after a stabbing at a mobile home park at about 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Freedman was one of two victims in the stabbing, which happened at Amherst Trail, a mobile home park near state Route 58 and state Route 113. Steven Bullard, 49, also was stabbed and taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he was listed in fair condition on Wednesday morning.

According to Bullard’s next-door neighbors, Debbie Carr and Ashley Carr, Bullard pounded on their door Tuesday night, bleeding from stab wounds to the back, stomach and arm. Bullard told his neighbors he was stabbed in his trailer by Freedman during an attempted robbery. He said there was an unidentified man dressed in black also involved in the robbery.

Police haven’t found any evidence of the unidentified man, according to the Sgt. Randal Koubek of the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office returned to Amherst Trail to interview witnesses and neighbors on Wednesday for more information.
