KETCHIKAN (AP) A woman who was in jail, accused of sending a co-worker to the hospital with a bite wound, is facing a new charge of trying to hire someone from jail to assault the same man.
Sarah Doig, 18, is accused of using a jail telephone last weekend to ask a man to beat up the co-worker for $300, according to documents filed in Ketchikan District Court.
Doig was in jail after an Aug. 21 incident at a downtown retail store resulted in a fourth-degree assault charge against her.
A Ketchikan Correctional Center guard told police he heard Doig talking on the telephone.
The man she was talking to told police Doig asked him to beat up the co-worker and specifically asked that he be put in the hospital with tubes down his throat to breathe.
Doig acknowledged to police that she made the phone call, according to the court documents.
She was arraigned Tuesday on the new charge of solicitation of assault in the first degree, a class B felony.
District Court Judge Kevin Miller maintained bail at $10,000.
