TERRI-LYNNE McClintic, the woman serving a life sentence for the killing of eight-year-old Victoria (Tori) Stafford in 2009, is facing assault charges in relation to an altercation in prison with another woman.
McClintic's lawyer, Geoff Snow, said the charges relate to an incident that took place between McClintic and Aimee McIntyre at the Grand Valley Institution for Women in Kitchener, Ont., on Jan. 30.
"I can't give you any details about the material details of the case, but I can tell you there was an altercation, an incident, that is alleged to have happened... between Ms. McClintic and another inmate. As a result of this, there is a charge of assault causing bodily harm."
Both women are serving life sentences for murder.
McIntyre, of Bobcaygeon, Ont., was convicted of having two men kill a former lover on her behalf.

Her former boyfriend, 31-year-old Michael Rafferty, is currently on trial for first-degree murder, kidnapping and sexual assault causing bodily harm in relation Tori's death.
Snow said McClintic would be making a video appearance from custody in Kitchener court on April 26 in relation to her assault charges.
