The bail hearing for a 21-year-old Cranston woman accused of stabbing the father of her child to death has been postponed.
Pawtucket police say on Feb. 1, Misty Ospina was dropping off her infant son at Richard Gibson’s house when the two got into an argument.
Ospina allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed the 22-year-old Gibson, according to police.
Two 911 calls were made – one form a resident of the house, at 19 Thornston St., and another from someone who had been with Ospina, according to Police and the Attorney General’s office.
Ospina told police that Gibson had punched her in the face four times and choked her, according to a prosecutor. But, Pawtucket police said they did not see any marks on Ospina that were consistent with being hit.
She has been at the Adult Correctional Facilities since her arrest, Feb. 2. Today’s scheduled hearing was postponed as Ospina, whose case had been referred to the public defender’s office, gets a private lawyer.
