Woman stabs boyfriend then throws his fake leg in yard

Updated:

GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) - Police say a South Carolina woman stabbed her boyfriend, then threw his prosthetic leg in the yard to prevent him from chasing her.

Greenwood police say 48-year-old Michelle Thomas called them Monday night and said she grabbed a knife and stabbed her boyfriend after he hit her.

Thomas said she swung the knife at him, then pulled off his prosthetic leg and tossed it and a spare leg out the door before calling police.

Authorities say the boyfriend told them Thomas had attacked him for no reason. He was treated at a hospital for cuts to his hands and leg.

Thomas has been charged with aggravated criminal domestic violence and has been released from jail. It wasn't known if she had an attorney and no phone listing was immediately available.
