Lakeshia R. Hall came back to her West Town home Saturday to find her boyfriend watching television with another woman, leading her to believe he had been unfaithful, prosecutors said today.
That sight launched Hall, 28, into a violent rage that earned her an attempted murder charge and sent her boyfriend to the hospital, prosecutors said.
Hall screamed, “I’ll kill you, bitch,” and attacked the 55-year-old boyfriend with multiple knives at her home in the 100 block of North Leavitt Street, according to a police report. The boyfriend — who remained hospitalized Sunday at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital — had stab wounds to his chest, neck, right side and right forearm. He also had bite marks on his arm.
Hall, who told police she had been drinking, was taken to jail Saturday night and then transferred to a hospital, where she remained during a hearing Sunday morning in Cook County Bond Court. Judge Edward Harmening ordered her held on $750,000 bail.
