No sentence yet in Castlegar stabbing case

We’ll have to wait a little longer to learn what will happen to a woman accused of breaking into a Castlegar home last year and stabbing two teenagers.

Sasha Margaret Prokaski appeared in Castlegar Provincial Court on Wednesday for a pre-sentencing report after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.

However, the matter has been delayed until Sept. 21.

Police said Prokaski, who was born in 1991, attacked two teens early on the morning of Feb. 21, 2021, including one who was stabbed multiple times. They were taken to hospital with serious injuries but survived
