Charleston County sheriff's deputies on Friday arrested a woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend last month while arguing about his alleged infidelity.
Tameka Lynette Harley, 31, of Chestnut Avenue in Charleston, is charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, court records show.
According to an incident report, sheriff's deputies were called to a Crossgate Boulevard home around 8 p.m. on March 22 following reports of a stabbing.
First responders found Harley's boyfriend standing on the front porch with a noticeable blood stain on the seat of his pants. Blood had also pooled on the porch where the man had been standing, deputies said.
When first questioned by investigators, the wounded man denied that he had been stabbed. He merely hurt himself when he fell, he reported to deputies.
The man later stated that he had been arguing with his girlfriend, Harley, that night. She had accused him of cheating, he told deputies.
A witness reported seeing a knife in Harley's hand shortly before the wounded man fell to the ground, deputies said.
Investigators found the bloody kitchen knife in the home's front yard, the report said. Harley fled the scene before deputies arrived.
Harley was arrested Friday and held at the Charleston County jail in lieu of a $25,000 bail, jail records show.
