The 29-year-old woman accused of stabbing another woman on Duluth's central hillside Sunday is formally charged in court.
Nicole Revello was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder. Bail was set at $250,000, but the prosecutor initially asked for $350,000.
Revello is from Marquette, Michigan.
During the arraignment, the prosecutor called the crime a cold, calculated attack. She said the victim, 46-year-old Lisa Davis, was stabbed a single time in the back.
In the criminal complaint, police said they were called to 108-1/2 East Fifth Street in Duluth for a report of a stabbing Sunday. When officers arrived on scene, they said Davis was lying on the floor unconscious and bleeding profusely.
Davis was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Officer said at least three people were at the duplex when the stabbing took place. They said they heard Davis' cry for help.
Court records show Revello told investigators Davis was talking too much and she "had to shut her up". Revello also said she sharpened the knives in the kitchen before the alleged stabbing took place, according to the criminal complaint.
The criminal complaint also states Revello told police she killed the victim, and also told officers she didn't help Davis after she was stabbed because "that wasn't the point".
It goes on to say Revello said she pulled out the knife so the victim would bleed.
People at the duplex during the alleged stabbing said the victim and suspect had an argument over a bag of clothes before the incident.
Revello's next court date is set for June 26 at 1:30 pm.
