MERRIMACK — Merrimack police officials said they’ve charged a local resident with making up the story that she had been stabbed near her mailbox in late January.
Kristin Miller, 33, of 3 Scott Drive, was released on $1,000 personal recognizance prior to her Feb. 22 arraignment in Merrimack District Court.
She faces a charge of making a false report to law enforcement, which is a Class A misdemeanor. The crime carries up to one year in county jail.
On Jan. 27 just after 10 p.m., Merrimack police officers and emergency medical services personnel went to her home.
She told responding officers and then investigators that an unknown man had confronted and stabbed her.
Merrimack police officials said they uncovered evidence that revealed Miller stabbed herself and the injuries were self-inflicted.
After the incident, Miller was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, where she underwent surgery.
