JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

The man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death on James Island last Sunday reportedly asked police to take him to jail last May when they responded to the home.

According to an incident report, Charleston police arrived at 1021-B Encampment Court on May 29, 2012 around 5:32 p.m. after 25-year-old Tasha Lucia told them her boyfriend, 30-year-old Robert Kronsberg, intended to hurt himself.

When an officer found Kronsberg in a bedroom he immediately told police, "Let's go, take me to jail."

The report states Kronsberg wanted to be taken to jail because he thought Lucia was cheating on him.

Police say Kronsberg told them he did not intend to hurt himself, but showed them a 7-8" scar on his forearm and said he tried to in the past.

Officers say Lucia and a friend previously removed two knives from the home to prevent Kronsberg from using them.

After police told Kronsberg there was no reason to take him to jail, police say the suspect pulled out a plastic container of marijuana and a glass bong and asked if that was enough to get him arrested.

The report states police then arrested Kronsberg and charged him with simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to the Charleston County Detention Center.

According to police, Lucia was found Sunday, Feb. 10, stabbed to death at the home. Kronsberg was found in another room passed out next to a bottle of vodka, a bottle of ibuprofen, and what appeared to be marijuana, along with a knife.

Kronsberg was covered in blood and was suffering from a 3" vertical laceration on his left wrist, which police say appeared to be self-inflicted.

Kronsberg was arrested and charged with murder and possession of a knife during the commission of a violent crime. He was scheduled to appear in bond court Tuesday, but the hearing was postponed as he remains in the intensive care unit at the Medical University of South Carolina.
