Courtney Plante, nineteen, and Sean Overstreet, her 37-year-old fiance (or, perhaps, husband), have been arrested for a bizarre murder attempt.

The victim: Michael Brown, a former teacher of Plante's who Overstreet stabbed multiple times while she allegedly encouraged him with comments such as, "Go get him, Sean."

Both Plante and Overstreet have active Facebook pages.

Her gallery includes portraits like this one....

...as well as numerous pics of her posing with a baby.

Her timeline also sports two separate "Got Engaged" items — one in March, another in October.

Her status says she's "in a relationship."

However, a photo of her on Overstreet's page....

Whatever their relationship, they appear to be in a roughly equal amount of trouble related to an incident that took place on January 4.

At around 7:27 p.m. that evening, according to the Fremont County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to the area of Highway 50 and Fremont County Road 1A in Cotopaxi.

The report: a stabbing.

Upon their arrival, the law enforcers came upon a man identified by the Canon City Daily Record as Brown. 

An arrest warrant obtained by the paper maintains that Plante, who Brown recognized as a former student, knocked on his door and said she needed help with a U-Haul that had broken down near a business with a very utilitarian name: Cotapaxi Store.

Brown is said to have driven Plante there in his car, a Jeep Cherokee.

But upon their arrival, a man allegedly assaulted Brown, smashing his face into the ground and stabbing him.

The attacker's face was partially hidden.

But Brown heard Plante use the aforementioned phrase "Go get him, Sean."

After blocking an attempt to slash his throat, Brown was able to get away and run toward the store.

At that point, the sheriff's office maintains, he flagged down a passerby.

But this wasn't the end of the story. Plante and Overstreet allegedly climbed into the Jeep, fired it up and chased after Brown — until they crashed into the passerby's ride.

They then fled the scene.

Neither suspect was immediately apprehended.

The next night, though, Plante was taken into custody during a traffic stop.

And at 5:30 p.m. yesterday evening, January 6, Overstreet was found.

Here's a FCSO photo of him being fitted for a pair of handcuffs.

The couple are on no-bond holds. Possible charges against them include attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and aggravated motor-vehicle theft.

By the way, a friend of Brown's posted that he underwent surgery earlier in the week and emerged in stable condition.

They're followed by a KOAA-TV report.
