What would you do if you found a dating app on your longtime lover's phone? Would you break up with him/her? Maybe you'd attack them with a samurai sword?
That's what Emily Javier did. She waited until her boyfriend was asleep after a night of video gaming... Then she took a samurai sword that she had taped to the side of the bed and attacked him with it.
Alex Lovell woke up just in time before she could strike a blow to him. He used martial arts training to try and restrain his girlfriend but she stabbed him anyway. He suffered serious injuries and nearly lost two fingers.
Lovell denies that he was being unfaithful. His ex-girlfriend is charged with attempted first-degree murder.
