Duluth prosecutor: Suspect wanted victim to bleed to death

DULUTH -- A Marquette, Mich., woman coldly and calculatedly stabbed a woman in the back and then pulled the knife out because she wanted the victim to bleed to death, a St. Louis County prosecutor told a Duluth judge Tuesday.

Nicole Leone Revello, 29, heard those words without visible emotion as she was charged with intentional second-degree murder in the death Sunday of Lisa Kay Davis, 46, of Duluth, in a Central Hillside apartment.

The criminal complaint alleges that the dispute started over clothing that Revello took from the apartment. Duluth police on Monday said the specific item of clothing in dispute was a pair of pants, but the complaint refers to a bag of clothing.

St. Louis County prosecutor Kristen Swanson asked Judge Eric Hylden to set bail at $350,000 because of the serious nature of the crime and the fact that Revello has no ties to the community and that she is a threat to public safety. Hylden set bail at $250,000.

Revello’s next hearing is scheduled for June 26.
