Woman Pleads Not Guilty in Stabbing Death

ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A Rockford woman has pleaded not guilty to stabbing a man to death.

27-year-old Sarah Bates was formally charged in court today with involuntary manslaughter.

On September 30th, Sheriff’s Deputies were called to Bates’ apartment on Linden Road. That’s where they found 30-year-old Kathy Mazique dead. Detectives say Bates stabbed the victim several times after the couple got into a fight. Bates will be in court next on December 4th.
