GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) -- A Greenwood woman has been arrested after police say she stabbed her boyfriend, then threw his prosthetic leg in the yard to prevent him from chasing her.

Police say 48-year-old Michelle Thomas called them Monday night and said she grabbed a knife and stabbed her boyfriend after he hit her.

Thomas said she swung the knife at her boyfriend, then pulled off his prosthetic leg and tossed it and a spare leg out the door before calling police.

Authorities say the boyfriend told them Thomas had attacked him for no reason. He was treated at a hospital for cuts to his hands and leg.

Thomas has been charged with aggravated criminal domestic violence. She declined to comment on her case Wednesday when reached by phone.
