Report: SC woman behind bars after choking daughter, chasing husband with knife

OCONEE COUNTY, SC (WYFF) - An Upstate woman is accused of chasing her husband with a butcher knife, trying to stab him in the back and then choking her 13-year-old daughter, according to arrest warrants.

Sumi Marie Jenkins, 31, of Fair Play, is charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and unlawful neglect of a child.

Deputies said on April 7, Jenkins chased her husband through their home with a butcher knife, held it to his throat threatening to kill him and then attempted to stab her husband in the back as he attempted to flee the residence.

Jenkins is also accused of choking her 13-year-old daughter by placing both of her hands around her neck, holding her down and restricting her ability to breathe, deputies said.

At a bond hearing Monday, Jenkins received a total $50,000 surety bond. She was released after a bonding company posted her bond.
