Lisa Karlaza, 53, of Dooleyville, is escorted by Mount Carmel Township Police Chief Brian Hollenbush from the courtroom of Magisterial District Judge William Cole, of Mount Carmel, on Wednesday after being held for court on all charges including criminal homicide relating to the stabbing death of her husband on July 4.

MOUNT CARMEL — “Mom, how can you do this to me? I’m your son. Just plead guilty.”

That was the reaction of Nicholas Karlaza after his mother, Lisa Karlaza, was held for court Wednesday on all charges for allegedly stabbing to death her 60-year-old husband, Richard Karlaza, at their home at 21 Back St., Dooleyville, on July 4. The victim suffered nine stab wounds on various sections of his body, according to testimony by one of the arresting officers.
