Arizona man accused of stabbing mom, grandmother re-arrested

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A man accused of stabbing his mother and grandmother last year in Glendale has been re-arrested in the case, according to authorities.

They said 32-year-old Emil Kolenovic was deemed medically incompetent after the Aug. 12 incident.

Police said he was arrested again last week after being released from medical care.

Kolenovic is being held on $250,000 bond and faces a preliminary hearing Friday.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.

Court records show Kolenovic is accused of attempting to commit second-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, disorderly conduct and assault.

His mother and grandmother needed emergency surgery and survived the stabbings.

The Arizona Republic reports Kolenovic claimed the two women tried to pour a white substance down his throat while he was asleep.
