A Lafayette woman is facing a manslaughter charge after a stabbing incident on Berlin Street in July.

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office confirmed to KATC that 42-year-old Crystal Ainsworth was originally arrested on July 18, following a stabbing. The victim, they say was Ainsworth's brother.

Ainsworth was booked initially on a charge of aggravated second degree battery. That charge was upgraded to manslaughter following the victim's death.

She is being held in the parish jail on a $100,000 bond.
