According to police, Penque entered the home and engaged in a verbal dispute with his ex-fiance, Virginia Mangas Scudder, 49, of Garner, and two other people.
The dispute moved outside and that was when Scudder was “stabbed multiple times with a screwdriver,” the report said. Scudder was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Penque remained in the Wake County Detention Center Friday afternoon under $1 million secured bond. He was scheduled to appear in court on June 10.
