Lockport woman avoids prison in double stabbing

A woman who stabbed two people in a fight in front of a City of Lockport apartment house last year was placed on five years' probation Thursday, court officials said.

State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. could have sentenced Laurie A. Morley to prison for as long as eight years, and she risks that penalty if she violates the terms of probation.

Morley, 53, of Crestwood Drive, Lockport, stabbed Marcus Townsend and Julonda Brown on Aug. 22 at 198 Pine St. Townsend, the more seriously injured of the two, was treated in Erie County Medical Center for multiple stab wounds.

Kloch issued an eight-year order of protection requiring Morley to stay away from the victims.
