By April Simpson, Globe Staff
The stabbing of a 19-year-old student in a Boston College dormitory this weekend was sparked by a fight between two women over whether one had bleached the other's laundry, according to documents filed today in Brighton District Court.
Diana Mirambeaux-Saker accused her classmate, Brianna L. Jones, 19, of bleaching her clothes in a washing machine on Friday night, and the pair began to fight. According to the documents, Mirambeaux-Saker grabbed Jones by the collar of her sweatshirt and threatened her.
Jones fought back, according to the documents, choking and punching Mirambeaux-Saker. Then, another Boston College student, Kevin Gordon, 19, jumped in and punched Jones in the face, according to the documents.
At some point during the fight, Jones is accused of stabbing Mirambeaux-Saker twice in the chest with a knife. While witnesses did not report seeing a blade, a trail of blood was visible on the first-floor of Vanderslice Hall after the fight, according to the documents.
Jones pleaded not guilty today at her arraignment in Brighton District Court. She is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and aggravated assault.
Mirambeaux-Saker was treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.
