Stabbing suspects claim self defense

WEATHERFORD —

By CHRISTIN COYNE

The two women charged in a July 4 stabbing in Hudson Oaks say they were acting in self-defense. 

According to Hudson Oaks police, 33-year-old Misty Morosky told police that two women attacked her following a minor collision after the Boomin’ 4th event. 

Police have charged Ceara Renteria, 21, of Crowley, with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and injury to a child, alleging Renteria slashed and stabbed Morosky multiple times about the neck, back and arms and injured Morosky’s 10-year-old son, who attempted to intervene. Morosky, who was airlifted to a Fort Worth hospital, also reportedly told police that Renteria choked her to the point of losing consciousness. 

However, Renteria disputed Morosky’s account, telling the Weatherford Democrat in an interview at the Parker County Jail Thursday that Morosky threw the first punch and was choking Renteria when Renteria stabbed her. 

Renteria said she attempted to push the 10-year-old boy out of the fight but did not believe she hurt or injured the child. 

Haley Maupin, Renteria’s 17-year-old cousin, who is charged with assault causing bodily injury, admitted to fighting with Morosky but said she didn’t hit the woman until she was punched more than once while attempting to break up the fight between Renteria and Morosky. 

A man with Morosky also kicked and beat the cousins during the fight, according to Renteria and Maupin, who said they sustained minor injuries.

Renteria’s fiance, who, according to Maupin’s account, attempted to separate the fighting women and man, rode an ambulance and was hospitalized for more than three days with head injuries caused by the other man, the family said. 

Renteria and Maupin say the incident started when a man with Morosky walked up to the car driven by Renteria’s fiance and kicked the door while swearing and shouting at them, according to the women.
