Helen Ann Williams, 44, was charged with domestic violence for stabbing her husband with a ceramic squirrel because she was angry at him for returning home without beer on Christmas Eve 2013. The man was found covered with blood at their North Charleston home. Helen Ann Williams told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but couldn't explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.
Deputies say the man said Williams was so angry when he returned without beer because stores were closed on Christmas Eve that she grabbed a ceramic squirrel, beat him in the head, then stabbed him in the shoulder and chest. He survived.
