LAFAYETTE, GA (Times Free Press) -- A Lafayette, Ga., man remains in critical condition at Erlanger hospital after his estranged wife was accused of stabbing him in the stomach and back with a steak knife.
Police found Stephen Oliver, 40, bloody on his porch after his 42-year-old wife, Priscilla, called 911 to report she needed authorities, an incident report shows. Before police arrived, Priscilla fled in a black Ford Ranger, but she was caught a few miles away because two of her truck's tires had been slashed.
As LaFayette police handcuffed her on a charge of aggravated assault, she told officers she had been choked and beaten and muttered that her tires had been slashed but "police won't do anything," the report states.
But Sgt. Stacey Meeks said police don't believe Priscilla Oliver was acting in self-defense when she allegedly stabbed her husband.
