Live Oak High School assistant principal Kim Lemos will be at South County Courthouse for a Thursday preliminary hearing in the case in which she is accused of stabbing her husband with a knife.
Lemos, 39 of Gilroy, pleaded not guilty in December to a felony charge of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse.
Police said Lemos stabbed her husband Tim in the chest, and caused him other minor injuries. The altercation happened after the couple were in the midst of an argument about “marriage issues,” police said.
Gilroy police arrested Lemos Aug. 26, 2010, after she turned herself in for the incident which occurred the night before at the couple’s home on Swallow Lane in Gilroy.
Tim Lemos did not require immediate medical attention after he was stabbed but he later drove himself to Saint Louise Regional Hospital to receive stitches for a cut he sustained to his left hand when grabbing for the knife, police said.
Kim Lemos, who taught English at Gilroy High School until 2003, returned to her job at Live Oak High School after the incident. As assistant principal, her duties include dealing with discipline, attendance, athletics and school safety, among other responsibilities.
Lemos is subject to the provisions of a peaceful contact order, which was issued by the court in September and restricts her interaction with her husband. She faces a maximum sentence of four years in prison if found guilty of the charge.
