Cops Say Gainesville Woman Allegedly Tried To Run Over, Then Stabbed Boss After Alleged Theft From Employer

A 39 year old Gainesville woman is facing serious charges after police say she tried to run over, and later stabbed her supervisor because, cops say, she had been caught in a scheme of “considerable theft of funds” from her law firm employer, and may have been trying to cover it up or perhaps retaliate after the alleged heist was exposed, according to The Gainesville Sun.

After being confronted about accounting irregularities, Linda Renae Williams, an accountant at Scruggs, Carmichael & Wershow, a Gainesville law firm, reportedly became upset, texted a friend that her life “was over”, then Google mapped the address belonging to her supervisor with the alleged intent of getting gangster.

At some point, Williams allegedly tried to ram her car into the supervisor’s car but then later inexplicably convinced the woman to come to a secluded room at the law office where she’s accused of sticking the woman in the neck with a 5-inch fillet knife.

The victim was treated for serious injuries at an area hospital.

Williams is now sitting in the Alachua County Jail. She faces two attempted murder charges with no bail set.

Charges connected to the alleged theft are forthcoming, according to The Sun.
