A Hopkinsville woman was arrested on domestic assault charges yesterday after she allegedly cut her husband with a kitchen knife.
The alleged incident happened around 5:30pm at the Morris Estates on Sivley Road, where 31-year old Amy Whittle and 33-year old Colin Whittle were reportedly in a dispute when Ms. Whittle brandished an 8 inch kitchen knife.
Colin Whittle told officers she threatened to kill him and started swinging the knife at him. As he tried to avoid being struck, he was cut on his left upper arm. Police say he refused medical treatment for the superficial laceration.
Amy Whittle was arrested around 9pm last night at the police station and charged with 2nd degree assault and lodged in the Christian County Jail.
