An Oildale woman is free after the D.A. sends her stabbing case back.22-year-old Abrianna Ringgold has been released from jail in connection with the stabbing death of an Oildale man after the District Attorney returned the case to Sheriff’s investigators for more evidence and is awaiting toxicology reports. Her family says she is the one who called 911 after Monday’s stabbing and had run to hide from her uncle, which is where she was found by deputies. They say there have also been numerous calls to the home on Oildale Avenue for domestic abuse by the man, so they claim she acted in self-defense. Ringgold was arrested shortly after the killing on a charge of first-degree murder.
