Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.– A local woman faces two felony charges early Wednesday.

Those charges are related to the stabbing death of a Mesa County man.

34-year-old Sabrina Stevens, of Clifton, is being charged with felony assault in the first degree and felony manslaughter.

Stevens is also being charged with domestic violence.

During her last appearance, the prosecution was not prepared to file charges against Stevens until more interviews were conducted.

On September 26, at a residence in the 3400 block of F 3/4 Road, Stevens is said to have stabbed Andrew Hapoff.

Hapoff later died from his injuries at St. Mary’s Hospital.

According to the arrest affidavit, Stevens told a responding deputy she and the victim had a volatile relationship and he had attempted to strangle her that night.

Stevens alleges Hapoff also mentioned the term, “one shot, one kill”, which also made her feel threatened.

Children inside the home also told investigators Hapoff tried to choke Stevens.

Stevens’ stepfather tells investigators he went to the house after the incident and Stevens asked him for help in saving the victim.
