A Gray woman is facing multiple assault charges after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend and then fought with Knox County Sheriff’s deputies and Kentucky State Police when they found the butcher knife on her person at the Knox County Hospital Sunday afternoon.
Thirty-two-year-old Jessica Lowe reportedly had to be tazed before law enforcement was able to restrain her and secure her in handcuffs.
According to Deputy Carl Frith, he was initially called to 88 Elk River Court off of Old Barbourville Hwy. in Gray in response to a domestic dispute involving Lowe and her live-in boyfriend James Barton that had turned physical.
When Frith arrived on the scene, he reportedly found Lowe walking down the road, with a cut to her arm.
Lowe was taken by ambulance to Knox County Hospital.
