'Sick of cooking,' Lake Worth woman accused of stabbing man

A 46-year-old woman was arrested on Monday for allegedly stabbing a man during an argument over how "sick" she was of cooking for him.

Lisa Cherry, whose last known address was in Lake Worth, is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bond, according to jail records. She is facing aggravated battery charges.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputy was approached in Lake Worth Sunday night by the 56-year-old victim who said he had been in an argument with Cherry about food.

The man said that Cherry started drinking beer and began throwing food out the door because she was sick of cooking for him, the affidavit said. The man said he threatened Cherry with cutting "her pony tail off if she didn't stop throwing things."

Cherry allegedly picked up a kitchen knife, cut the phone line of the home and then stabbed the man in the left hand, the man said. A witness repeated a similar story, the deputy said.
