Woman Sentenced to 100 Years in Prison for Fatally stabbing Two People 

An Indiana woman who fatally stabbed two people and seriously injured a third in May 2020 has been sentenced to 100 years behind bars.


Kristen Wolf, who pleaded guilty to two counts of murder, attempted murder and attempted battery, was handed 100 years in prison on Friday for fatally stabbing two people and the attempted murder of a third at an Indianapolis apartment complex on May 11, 2020.

The incident occurred at the Carriage House West apartments, near 10th Street and Lynhurst Drive where 28-year-old Dylan Dickover and 24-year-old Victoria Cook were killed.

The victims said that when they answered the door of their roommates’ apartment at the Carriage House West complex on the far west side of Indianapolis, they were attacked by a strawberry-blond haired woman they didn’t know.


Police discovered a horrific murder scene with blood all over the first floor of the apartment, including the living room, kitchen and walls, when they arrived at the crime scene. The woman with the knife had already fled the scene by the time the police arrived.

Victoria Cook died instantly from the stab wounds and Dylan Dickover died at a hospital. A second woman was injured and rushed to surgery.

Police found a cap on the crime scene, which the victims said belonged to the attacker. The cap was collected by crime lab evidence technicians and was found to contain a patch labeled as Indiana Department of Correction and the handwritten name “Wolf.”


Also, blood and other possible DNA evidence were found on the cap. This led police to Wolf, who was working as a corrections officer at the Madison Correctional Facility at the time of the attack.

According to court documents, Wolf allegedly wrote a manifesto, in which she said that serial killers served as her inspiration but that she didn’t want to kill someone she knew. The manifesto also contained a written will and information indicating that Wolf was not planning to die but was prepared for it. The paper bore the same murderous date, May 11, 2020.

Wolf was taken into custody at the Madison Correctional Facility and questioned there. Prior to transport, Wolf gave a brief interview in which she categorically denied being in Indianapolis on May 11.

Although the victims inside the apartment during the attack insist they don’t know Wolf, police believe they both have connections to a man who reportedly trains women how to use knives to kill people. The preliminary investigation shows that one of the victims previously dated a man who Wolf was dating, according to one of Wolf’s neighbors.

On Friday, Wolf was handed 100 years in prison.
