Ohio Woman Pleads Guilty to Stabbing Ex-Boyfriend Over Salsa and Sex Offender Status

A Canton, Ohio woman admitted on Monday to stabbing her boyfriend after becoming irate that he ate all of their salsa.

Phyllis Jefferson, 50, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, a fourth-degree felony. After a background check, Summit County Common Pleas Judge Amy Corrigall Jones will sentence Jefferson on Jan. 4. Jefferson's lawyer, Noah Munyer, said the stabbing was because she learned her boyfriend was a sex offender.

Jefferson's then-61-year-old boyfriend on March 29 told police that Jefferson complained about him finishing off their salsa. She yelled and thrusted a pen in the left side of his pelvis. She also knocked over his television, but he saved it before it hit the ground.

After that, Jefferson grabbed a small kitchen knife to stab him in the left side of his stomach. Jefferson drove away, but police stopped her on Interstate 77 near U.S 224.

Akron police found the man with his shirt and hands covered in blood. The man had been convicted of two sex offenses since 1979 and spent 18 years in prison stemming from a 1985 conviction for felonious assault and gross sexual imposition.

In 2003, a judge said he must register his address with the county sheriff every year for 20 years.
