A U.S. Army sergeant first class’s wife has been arrested after she allegedly stabbed him during a dispute over household chores.
The 46-year-old Fort Knox soldier was allegedly stabbed after his wife, 42-year-old Chaniqua Boyd, said he broke his promise to clean their couch.
When military police responded to the residence on the Kentucky military post, they found Vince Gill III with a large wound in his upper torso.
He was taken to the University of Louisville Trauma Center with a punctured lung and his wife was immediately detained.
According to the criminal complaint, Gill said an argument started “over him not cleaning the couch due to a missing part from the machine he rented.” After an alleged attempt to “deescalate the situation,” he and his wife began spitting at each other.
“Boyd then returned from the kitchen with a knife and said, ‘I wish you would spit at me again,’” the complaint says. “She then followed V.G. to the kitchen and the two continued to argue. Boyd punched V.G. in the face twice and then stabbed him in the chest.”
Boyd was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm and fitted with an ankle monitor.
“Boyd vehemently denies the allegations and looks forward to presenting the full version of events at the appropriate time,” her lawyer said claiming that she had long been abused by Gill.
