Pifer, 63 of Kingman, on a felony charge of Aggravated Assault. Officers responded to a
property in the 600blk of Market St, after receiving a 911 call of a disturbance involving
a stabbing. Officers learned that Pifer and the 60 year old female victim, who live on the

head with a fan and stabbing her in the arm with a screw driver. The victim was

** Forgery **
On Wednesday, August 29th, Kingman Police arrested Jackie Marie Dougherty, 30 of
Kingman, on a felony charge of Forgery. Dougherty, who was already in the Mohave
County Jail on a probation violation charge, was wanted in regards to an ongoing KPD
investigation where she is alleged to have falsified the birth certificate of her newborn.
The investigation revealed that Dougherty, instead of writing her name on the birth
certificate of her new born daughter, wrote the name of a friend. Investigators believe
that this was done to avoid discovery of a warrant and any ramification of her baby being
born with complications due to drug use. Dougherty, who admitted involvement in the
offense, was additionally charged while in the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility.
AZ Department of Child Safety is involved in the investigation and has custody of the
