Sisters Who Allegedly Stabbed Woman on GRTC Bus Last July Plead In Court Tuesday

Jonae and Shamia Cox were both charged with malicious wounding after the attack.

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The trial began Tuesday for two sisters accused of stabbing a woman on a GRTC bus.

Both Jonae and Shamia Cox were charged with a malicious wounding following the attack.

Back in July 2014, several witnesses told 8News that the sisters were outside the bus at Broad and Bowe Streets arguing with a woman inside. That’s when witnesses say the sisters hopped on the bus with a knife and stabbed a young woman multiple times. The victim survived the attack.

Shamia pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to 12 months behind bars.

Jonae pleaded no contest. She has a pre-sentencing report hearing set for March 15.
