Bail was set $100,000 for a Cheektowaga man accused of stabbing his former wife in the neck last week.

Louis Lopez, 44, of William Street was arrested July 1 by Cheektowaga detectives for allegedly stabbing his former wife multiple times and then dropping her off at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Harlem Road. The woman suffered multiple serious injuries in the assault, detectives said.

Lopez was arraigned July 2 before Cheektowaga Town Justice Paul S. Piotrowski, who set bail. Lopez, through his attorney, waived his right to a felony hearing Monday, so the matter proceeded directly to the Grand Jury. Lopez on Monday was returned to the Erie County Holding Center.
