Mt. Pleasant woman accused of stabbing ex-boyfriend

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators have arrested a 36-year-old woman accused of stabbing her ex-boyfriend twice during an argument outside a Mount Pleasant home.

The Mount Pleasant Police Department charged Kelly M. Linyard with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

On Thursday afternoon, officers responded to a home on Bank Street in reference to a 911 call. 

Officers said when they arrived at the home, they saw some black hair, possibly a wig, on the driveway next to a bush that had a broken branch. Authorities also found a kitchen knife on the driveway.

Police say Linyard, who had a long scratch underneath her right eye, was emotionally unstable and told two children, "I am going to jail."

According to Linyard, it all started when the victim, her ex-boyfriend, went to her room and took some items from her drawer. Linyard said when she followed the victim outside, he began to choke her.

Linyard said a juvenile then grabbed a kitchen knife from the house and gave it to her. Linyard told police that she swung the knife a few times but was not sure if she stabbed the victim.

According to Linyard, the victim told her, "I will choke you until I see you bleed or die."

Police say when the victim grabbed Linyard's head, her head hit the door of the victim's car. Linyard said the victim then sat in his car and backed the vehicle up while he was still holding Linyard's shirt.

A police report states that Linyard then collided with the driver's side door. Linyard said she then hit a bush and fell to the ground.

Authorities later learned that the victim was stabbed twice on the left side of his body and was transported to MUSC.

    The tallest points of downtown Charleston has shifted from steeple tops to towering cranes building the next high-rise. In downtown Charleston, the intersections of Meeting and Woolfe Streets to Meeting and Huger Street are only about a half mile apart. One apartment complex already exists in that area (Elan Midtown) and sits at 97% capacity with more than 200 units. Over the next year, four more apartment complexes will be built and opened.
