The case involving a stabbing in Oildale Monday morning has been returned to the Kern County Sheriff’s Department for further review. The suspect will be released Wednesday night.

Abrianna Ringgold stabbed a man around 11 a.m. Monday. She was booked for first-degree murder after Kern County deputies found her hiding in a neighbor’s yard, near where the victim was found “bleeding profusely” in the roadway from multiple stab wounds.

The victim was taken to an area hospital with major injuries and later died.

Friends say Ringgold acted in self-defense.
