CHICAGO — A home health aide flew into a rage after she spotted her boyfriend watching TV with another woman at her Near West Side home, stabbing the man in the chest and biting him, prosecutors said.
Lakeshia Hall, 28, was intoxicated Saturday evening when she entered the home in the 100 block of North Leavitt Street where she lived with the victim, prosecutors said.
There, she found her 55-year-old boyfriend watching television with another woman, accused him of cheating on her, and flew into a rage, prosecutors said.
Clutching two knives that she got from the kitchen, she yelled, "I'll kill a [expletive]" and allegedly stabbed the boyfriend in the neck, right side of the body, right forearm and chest, "opening a wide wound."
The two struggled, and Hall allegedly sunk her teeth into the man's arm before police arrived.
Hall, who did not appear in court and has no apparent criminal record, was ordered held in lieu of $750,000 bond on a charge of attempted murder.
The boyfriend remained at Stroger Hospital in stable condition. Hall was also at the hospital Sunday for reasons that were not immediately clear.
