Authorities: Woman charged with murder after stabbing man with nail clippers
Officials say a woman has been charged with murder after she allegedly used a nail clipper to stab a man during a domestic dispute in Millville.
The attack happened early Sunday morning at her Country Meadows mobile home.
According to police, Kathleen Ayala, 30, and Axel Torres, 35, were arguing in their trailer when the dispute turned physical.
Authorities say Torres left the trailer, but Ayala chased after him, triggering another fight in which Torres was repeatedly stabbed and left unconscious. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition, but died of his wounds the next morning.
Ayala was charged with murder and was held at the Cumberland County jail to await a bail proceeding. She also faces weapons charges stemming from the attack.
