A woman who slashed her ex-boyfriend’s hand with a knife and bit off one of his eyebrows pleaded guilty to charges of second-degree battery and was sentenced to five years in prison Tuesday in Garland County Circuit Court, the Hot Springs Sentinel Record reported.
Latosha Ann Wilbourn, 34, also pleaded guilty to felony failure to appear, punishable by five years in prison. Wilbourn’s sentences will run concurrently, but she will receive credit for the time she has served since her arrest Jan. 13, 2015, the newspaper reported. She must also pay $170 in court costs.
Hot Springs police arrested Wilbourn after her 55-year-old boyfriend reported that she had sliced open his left hand with a knife and hit him in the head with a stick during an argument at their home on Daisy Street, according to an affidavit.
The victim said he walked to a local hospital, where he received 12 stitches in his hand, before returning to the house. Shortly after his arrival, another argument ensued that ended with Wilbourn pushing him off the chair he was sitting on and onto the bed, where she got on top of him and bit off most of his right eyebrow, the Sentinel-Record reported.
Hot Springs Detective Scott Lampinen responded to the fight and reported a large piece of flesh missing from the victim’s eyebrow and a bruise on his forehead. The stitches on the man’s hand were also ripped open during the struggle.
The newspaper reported that Wilbourn was convicted of theft and second-degree assault in 2002, of second-degree robbery in 2007 and of second-degree burglary in 2012.
