A Utah County woman was booked into jail, suspected of stabbing her mother repeatedly, after she went to a restaurant and told people what she’d done.

Jayde Lauren Altemeier, 31, of Saratoga Springs, is under investigation for attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Police responded to a report of a stabbing at the Extended Stay Hotel at 10715 Auto Mall Drive in Sandy on Saturday. When they arrived, they found Carla Orsini, 55, who had been stabbed twice in the chest, once in the neck and once to a finger and had lacerations on her left arm and lip. “Three of these injuries are in locations that are likely to cause death,” according to a probable cause statement.

Orsini was transported to a hospital. She was expected to survive.

Aletemeier — who had blood on her clothes — was arrested at an Olive Garden at 538 W. Main St. in American Fork, where she “made the statement that she had stabbed her mother.”
