Bronx Woman Kills Abusive with One Knife Stab

Patricia Nimmons, 55, stabbed her partner in what police are saying was a domestic violence incident, but she claimed it was self-defense.

At about 9 pm Friday police received a 911 call to attend the incident at the couple’s home at 963 Prospect Avenue. There, they found the victim lying inside the property unconcious and unresponsive, with a single knife wound to the lower left abdomen. [emphasis added]

…Upon arrest, Nimmons told police that her husband had come home from work shortly before, and that they had gotten into a dispute which had turned heated. She said that the victim had picked up a stick and started to beat her with it, and she had stabbed her husband in self-defense. The police reported that Nimmons had no apparent injuries at the time of the incident, or her arrest. The killing is being treated as homicide.

A single stab wound sounds like she was trying to get him off or away from her, not cold-bloodedly kill an innocent man. I hope the cops are smart enough to sort it out properly.
