A Rankin County woman is behind bars after being accused of stabbing her roommate.
A release from the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department says that Wednesday morning, Rankin County deputies were dispatched to the 200 block of Central Avenue in the unincorporated area of Florence.
Deputies were told that a man had been stabbed by his roommate at that address. The suspect, identified as Cheyenne Lowman Smith, was then detained while deputies checked on the victim.
The 55-year-old male victim had a stab wound to the abdomen and a cut wound on his neck. He was then transported to the hospital in stable condition.
Smith was then transported to the Rankin County Detention Center and charged with aggravated assault.
Rankin County District Attorney Bubba Bramlett will bring the suspect before Rankin County Court Judge David Morrow for an initial appearance.
