Dinah Larson, 27, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated domestic battery and battery of a person 60 years old or older, according to a statement from Wilmette police.

Officers arrived to find a 60-year-old woman who “had been stabbed multiple times with a knife,” police said. She was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life threatening.
