Marengo woman arrested after stabbing adult son, police say

A 42-year-old Marengo woman remained at the McHenry County Jail Wednesday after police say she stabbed a family member who sustained injuries that were not life threatening.

McHenry County sheriff’s deputies arrested Kandis S. Rinn on Sunday following a report of a domestic battery, police said.

“During the incident, it’s alleged that Kandis stabbed her adult son with a knife,” McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Tim Creighton said in an email Wednesday. “This was an isolated incident and alcohol is believed to be a factor.”

The man, who was stabbed in the abdomen, was flown to Javon Bea Hospital in Rockford with “serious but stable” injuries that were not considered life threatening, Creighton said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Rinn is charged with aggravated domestic battery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The most serious charge, aggravated domestic battery, typically is punishable by as many as seven years in prison.

Rinn, of the 19000 block of Ridge Lane, remained at the McHenry County Jail Wednesday morning on a $75,000 bond. She would need to post $7,500 to be released.

She is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing on March 3 with an attorney from the McHenry County Public Defender’s Office.
