Florida Woman Arrested after Stabbing Boyfriend Who was Too Tired for Sex

A Florida woman who allegedly could not get sex from her boyfriend turned a blade on him. Jennifer Lee Chapman, 37, of Dunedin — a suburb of Tampa — was arrested Wednesday on felony aggravated battery charges.

When the live-in boyfriend said he was too tired for sex, Chapman allegedly grabbed a serrated kitchen knife and cut her own arm.

Police say the boyfriend tried to stop Chapman, resulting in a physical confrontation between the couple. Both hit the floor during their struggle, according to the complaint filed by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. The report states that when the two briefly separated on the floor, Chapman grabbed the knife and cut her boyfriend multiple times in his arm and shoulder.

The report further alleges that Chapman head-butted her boyfriend and punched hm in the face. The victim was bleeding from stab wounds and showed injuries to his face.

Chapman reportedly fled the scene on foot. Neither alcohol nor drugs played a role in the incident, and there were no witnesses, according to the report. The incident occurred last Friday, but Chapman was not arrested until Wednesday.

In addition to these charges, Chapman could be in trouble for violating her probation. Last October she was sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to illegally possessing crystal meth, marijuana and Xanax, according to thesmokinggun.com.

The arrest comes just two days after a woman in West Virginia admitted to the 2017 stabbing death of her husband during rough sexual "foreplay."

On Monday, Jennifer Lynn Via, 49, was sentenced to 15 years for the stabbing death of her husband, Thomas Via.

Jennifer initially told authorities her husband had slipped and fell on the 14-inch dagger that went through his heart. She later confessed that the couple had been watching "kung fu" movies, and that led to violent foreplay by using weapons, according to ABC News.

She told Cabell Circuit Judge Gregory Howard she stabbed her husband in the back with a decorative dagger on Nov. 4, 2017, in Huntington at their home, according to the Huntington Herald-Dispatch.

She said she placed the knife against his back and penetrated it about seven inches into his back, which eventually struck his heart. He bled to death internally.
