A Conway teen faces battery charges after reportedly stabbing her soon-to-be husband in the head earlier this week.
Madison Lynn Hosman, 18, was formally charged Friday morning with second-degree domestic battery, a Class C felony, after reportedly stabbing her fiance in the head on Tuesday.
According to radio traffic, police were called out to a home on East Ridge Road in Mayflower shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday after a woman, soon identified as Hosman, reportedly stabbed Austin Tyler Kline in the head.
The 19-year-old victim dialed 911 to report the incident moments after he was reportedly stabbed.
Authorities "immediately observed a small laceration in the middle of Mr. Kline's forehead that was bleeding substantially" when they responded to the residence on East Ridge Road. The victim told police his wife stabbed him in the head and fled as he began to call 911.
"Kline stated that his fiancee had cut him with a kitchen knife following an [argument] and when he called 911 for help, she proceeded to flee the address in a white Chevrolet Malibu," Mayflower Lt. Wesley Tyra wrote in his report.
Paramedics were called to the scene to treat the victim's wounds, according to the report.
According to a probable cause affidavit, authorities located Hosman soon after the incident at a residence on Turkey Lane in Conway. The suspect said she would have her grandmother take her up to the police department to make a statement regarding the alleged incident.
"Deputies searched [around] Turkey Lane in Faulkner County, where they located and made contact with the suspect," the incident report reads in part. "She stated that her grandmother was going to transport her to the Mayflower Police Department to make an official statement about the events that had transpired."
Second-degree domestic battery is a Class C felony punishable of three to 10 years in prison and can also carry a fine up to $10,000.
As of press time Friday, a court date had not yet been set in the felony battery case against Hosman, who is currently free on bond.
