Via KLTV reports:
A South Carolina woman is in custody after telling police she stabbed a man following the discovery of text messages indicating he was cheating on her with another woman, and had fathered another child.
Courtney Leola Price, 23, was covered in blood and holding a small child while standing outside her apartment on Crossing Circle Drive when police arrived early Saturday morning, according to an Orangeburg Department of Public Safety incident report.
Officers found 24-year-old Samuel Simmons lying on the bedroom floor nude and suffering from a stab wound to his chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“I saw the phone while he was sleeping and saw that he is messing with a [expletive removed] and had another child. I cut him.” Price told police. “I was just standing up for myself. It’s not fair when women fight back…I am tired of his abuse.”
According to the report, when police told Price that Simmons was dead, she fell onto the floor crying. “Oh my God,” she said. “This is not real. I was just standing up for myself. He was choking me. The one time I stood up this happens. It’s not fair.”
Price was booked into the Orangeburg-Calhoun Regional Detention Center. She is charged with murder.
Price and Simmons’ child was released into the custody of his grandmother.
