Woman who stabbed boyfriend with pen pleads guilty
AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- A northeast Ohio woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend after yelling at him for eating all of the salsa has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.
Ronnie Buckner told officers 50-year-old Phyllis Jefferson yelled at him in March at his apartment for finishing off the salsa. Buckner said Jefferson then picked up a pen and jammed it in the left side of his pelvis.
The 61-year-old Buckner said he tried to catch a television that Jefferson had knocked over when she grabbed a small kitchen knife and stabbed him in the stomach.
Jefferson's attorney, however, says the stabbing happened because she just learned her boyfriend was a registered sex offender.
Cleveland.com reports Jefferson pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on Monday. She'll be sentenced later.
