A 31-year-old newlywed is accused of stabbing her husband multiple times in the chest and arm Wednesday night at a bar in Salisbury.

The Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office arrested Gennifer Yoakum of Petersburg, formerly Gennifer White.

She faces possible charges of aggravated battery and unlawful use of a weapon.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Coyote Den, 6123 Main St. in Salisbury, at 7:52 p.m. for a report of a crash with injuries.

Police also received additional information about a man bleeding from the chest and arm.

Deputies arrived and found Yoakum sitting in the driver’s seat of a car.

Yoakum said there was a crash but did not mention anything about another person being in the vehicle with her, police said.

Witnesses told authorities that a man left in another vehicle.

Shortly after, a man showed up at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield with stab wounds, saying he was stabbed at a bar in Salisbury.
