According to the authorities, they were called to the home sometime after midnight and found the wounded 41 year old man. He had been able to drag himself to a neighbors home after the attack. Officers noted, various scratches, blood and a deep cut on his shoulder.
When police questioned his wife Helen, she claimed the man simply fell down and injured himself. Obviously her husband had a completely different story. He told police he walked to a nearby store to buy beer, but the store was closed. When he returned without beer, his wife became enraged and hit him in the head with the ceramic squirrel, then stabbed him with it in the chest and shoulder.
He was treated at a nearby hospital and Helen Williams was held at the Charleston County jail with a $10,000 bond.
I’m thinking AA may have been cheaper… but hey what ever floats your boat!
