Her bond is set at $25,000.

Authorities said she stabbed herself after stabbing her father and that both are expected to recover.

On Wednesday, Steve Kunzweiler called for better health care in Oklahoma after the incident.

“In my 30-plus years I have witnessed that system erode so badly that now the Tulsa County Sheriff houses the largest population of mentally ill-affected people in the state. That is simply wrong,” he said.
