Duluth, MN (The Weekly Vice) - Sandra Paschal, a 57-year-old Minnesota woman was jailed after she allegedly hacked through a door with a machete, then went after her husband with the weapon.
According to police, Paschal and her husband had been arguing most of the day Sunday when the argument turned violent.
Investigators say Paschal became so angry that she left the room, retrieved a machete and returned to confront her husband with it.
When she found that her husband had locked the door, she allegedly used the machete to hack her way through it. She then entered the room and struck her husband twice with the weapon.
When officers arrived, Paschal stated that her husband repeatedly struck her with a baseball bat. Officers discounted her claim due to a lack of physical injuries on Paschal.
"She changed her story several times," said Gwinnett Police spokesperson, Jake Smith.
Officers described Paschal as "borderline incoherent" while attempting to interview her.
The husband told police that Paschal had struck him in the head with a telephone earlier that day before things flared up again.
Paschal was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail and charged with felony aggravated assault. Her bond has been set at $11,200.
