Tulsa Police say woman fatally stabbed boyfriend with sword

The Associated Press - June 1, 2017 1:18 pm

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa woman has been arrested on a second-degree murder complaint after authorities say she fatally stabbed her boyfriend with a sword.

Police identified the man as 36-year-old Ronnie Beetz. They arrested Micca Thompson, 38, on a second-degree murder complaint following the stabbing.

Police say the woman told authorities that her boyfriend choked and slapped her early Thursday, so she grabbed a nearby sword and swung it at the man. Police say the man was struck in the abdomen.

The altercation happened at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday at an apartment on South Santa Fe Avenue.

Police say the man was taken to a Tulsa hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead at 3:30 a.m. Thursday.
