Using an EpiPen, which injects the drug epinephrine, in someone who is not having a severe allergic reaction can lead to a dangerous rise in blood pressure.
First responders evaluated Laura and found that she did not inject any medication due to the way Joanna was holding the EpiPen during the attack.
However, Laura was left with a large welt on her thigh where her sister stabbed her.
Joanna was booked into the Collier County Jail pending arraignment on March 1, records showed.
Laura allegedly told investigators that her sister had hurt her multiple times in the past.
