A Cotton Valley woman sits behind bars after reportedly stabbing her boyfriend several times with a two-prong meat fork.
Andrea Booth Moore, 34, of the 100 block of Sikes Ferry Road in Cotton Valley, was arrested Friday, Aug. 8, and charged with aggravated battery. Her bond is set at $20,000.
Cotton Valley police chief Terry Brown says he and Officers Jasson Fitzgerald and Santee Douglas were dispatched to the Sikes Ferry Road residence in reference to a stabbing.
“When we walk up the house, there’s blood everywhere,” Brown said. “This guy had blood all over his head, neck, arm and there was blood all over the floor.”
The initial investigation revealed the victim and Moore had gotten into an argument because she’d reportedly had too much to drink, Brown said.
“She grabbed a meat fork and stabbed him in several places,” he said. “We arrested her for aggravated battery and called an ambulance for the victim. He didn’t want to press charges. The paramedics arrived, they cleaned him up but he refused medical transport.”
Moore was transported to the Webster Parish Women’s Jail after she was booked at the Cotton Valley Police Department on the above charge.
