A 20-year-old Port Alberni woman has been sentenced to six months in jail for the stabbing of her roommate and her sister earlier this fall.

The woman stabbed a man on Oct. 27 and her sister on Dec. 4.

Both victims were stabbed in the back of the head.

A psychological evaluation showed that the woman has been formally diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and revealed an addiction to methamphetamine (meth) that made her hear voices when she was under the influence.

The woman has served 86 days already and those will be counted against her sentence, the judge hearing the case noted. A one-year probation will follow.
