A Fort Walton Beach woman with an active Domestic Violence injunction is charged with stabbing her husband, the injunction petitioner, following a night out at a local bar Thursday.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged 52-year old Shawna Evans of Shirley Drive with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon (domestic violence) and violation of a domestic violence injunction.
The 54-victim suffered a puncture wound to the chest. He also suffered a laceration to the hand trying to get the knife away during the attack. Evans had a cut to her hand as well.
The victim says the pair went out to have drinks and then got into an argument when they returned home. He says Evans scratched his face before leaving the room and returning with a large butcher knife.
Deputies found the knife, which still had blood smeared on it, in the kitchen in the drying rack.
