Isaac was arrested in January after her uncle said she stabbed him and took money from him. Isaac has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. In court filings, it was revealed Isaac allegedly told investigators she enjoyed attacking her uncle.

Springfield police began their investigation when they were called to a home on the 2100 block of Gerald Drive in reference to a stabbing.

“Upon officers’ arrival, they located the victim inside the residence and (he) was bleeding profusely from a chest wound. Medics responded and immediately transported him to Springfield Regional Medical Center, where his injuries were assessed and because of the severity, he was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital,” the affidavit says.

The affidavit says there was blood throughout the home, and several cabinets and closets were open that appeared to be ransacked.

Officers spoke with a family member who stated she received a call from the victim after the assault and told her that Issac came to his house and stabbed and robbed him of $300, according to the affidavit.

“Detectives spoke to the victim at Miami Valley Hospital,” the affidavit says. “He stated he was sitting in his chair when he awoke to a pain in his chest and stated his niece was stabbing him with a knife and demanded $500 at which time he stated ‘Becky do you know what you’re doing?’ and she replied ‘I’m going to kill you if I don’t get the money.’”

A hearing date is set for the case on Dec. 12.
