Sherrod’s unidentified boyfriend was lying in a hospital bed with Sherrod at his side when an argument ensued concerning “suspected infidelity,” police said.
She became “irate” when her boyfriend would not permit her see his phone, the Times reported. As the argument continued, Sherrod “picked up a pair of surgical scissors in the hospital room and began stabbing her boyfriend in the right thigh causing multiple puncture wounds,” the police report said.
