Mason stabbing victim recovering; son is charged

A Mason County woman who was stabbed over the weekend was recovering Tuesday at the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Mason County Sheriff Patrick Boggs said a relative of Phoebe Coffey, 84, called deputies Saturday morning and asked them to make a welfare check. Boggs said deputies found the woman lying in her driveway about 11:45 a.m. Saturday at her home in Plumville. Coffey was taken to a local hospital before she was transferred to UK Hospital, where she was listed in fair condition Tuesday.

Coffey's son, Larry Coffey, 60, is charged with attempted murder. Larry Coffey is being held at the Mason County jail on a $250,000 cash bond.

Investigators said they think the stabbing occurred Friday night.
