LINCOLN COUNTY WOMAN STABS SISTER - A Lincoln County woman has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her sister.

The stabbing happened in Harts community.

The stabbing happened at the home of Dwayne Mullins, 48, of Harts.

Mullins said the victim's sister, Rebecca Adams, 41, of Harts, stabbed her and left the scene.
