JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Deputies arrested a 45-year-old James Island woman late Sunday accused of stabbing her boyfriend with a screwdriver.

According to a Charleston County Sheriff's Office incident report, deputies responded to a home in the 1000 block of Pauline Avenue on Jan. 28 after the victim's mother reported a domestic disturbance.

When deputies arrived, the victim's mother told them her son called her at 12:30 p.m. and said his live-in girlfriend of three years, 45-year-old Kimberly Kone, had just stabbed him with a Phillips' head screwdriver.

The mother said she walked outside and saw her son and Kone in the driveway, at which time Kone started walking down the street.

Deputies interviewed the victim, who told them he and Kone had been living together "off and on" at a nearby home on West Madison Avenue. The victim said he had grown tired of arguing and was getting ready to move back into his mother's home on Pauline Drive.

The victim said Kone was trying to convince him to stay, but the argument became louder and Kone became more upset, eventually reaching into a car's glove box, grabbing a screwdriver, and stabbing him in the leg.

Deputies said they made several attempts to contact Kone to get her side of the story, and the victim initially told them he did not want to press charges.

Nonetheless, Kone was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and taken to the Charleston County Detention Center.
