North Iowa woman no longer facing domestic abuse charges


MASON CITY, Iowa – Domestic abuse assault charges against a Thornton woman have been dropped.

37-year-old Sandie Lee Knutson was accused of attacking a 34-year-old man on July 10.

She was scheduled to stand trial on November 29 but the Cerro Gordo County Attorney’s Office filed to dismiss the charges, saying new evidence called into question the report of the alleged victim.

A no contact order issued in this case has also been lifted.
