NORWICH — Police say a 38-year-old woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend in Norwich back in September, was arrested on a Vermont warrant in New Hampshire.

Amanda R. Zanis, of Danbury, NH, is now facing 90 counts of contempt of court, and 2 counts of obstruction of justice.

Police say Zanis was extradited back to Vermont and held in the custody of Vermont Department of Corrections.

She was ordered not to have contact with the victim of crimes she was being held for.

Police say in October, authorities began a partnered investigation related to Zanis and her attempts to contact the victim that she was forbidden from.

Investigators say Zanis communicated with the crime victim more than 90 times.

Police say in two of these contacts, she obstructed justice by her specific requests of the victim and discussion of the case with the victim.
