FREEHOLD - A teenage boy who allegedly stabbed a Monmouth County woman and stole her car last summer will be tried as an adult.

Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni announced the decision Wednesday.

Brennan Doyle, 17, of Colts Neck, is charged with attempted murder, carjacking and two weapons offenses stemming from the July 2013 attack in the township.

The prosecutor’s office says the 41-year-old victim was investigating a noise outside of her house when Doyle allegedly pushed his way into the victim’s home and stabbed her several times. Doyle then took the keys to her car and fled the scene in her vehicle, which was found in Aberdeen later that day.

The woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition. She was released after several days of treatment.
