A New Orleans-area woman has been arrested and charged after police said she beat her boyfriend with his prosthetic leg when he tried to break up with her.
Police said Michelle Jackson and her boyfriend had been drinking Feb. 11 and that’s when her boyfriend told Jackson he wanted to break up, WVUE reported.
When the man woke up the next morning, he said he had a cut on his head that was dripping blood and injuries to his hand.
Police said Jackson told a relative that she took the man’s leg and beat him with it. She also admitted to stabbing him, but he didn’t have any stab wounds, police said, according to WVUE.
Police said Jackson called the relative because she thought she had killed her boyfriend, WVUE reported.
U.S. marshals searched for Jackson and found her Wednesday. She’s being held without bond at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center.
