West Virginian, 39, Put Out Cigarette In Her Boyfriend's Eye, Police Charge
Meet Cindy Jean Underwood.
The 39-year-old West Virginian is locked up on $10,000 bail after she allegedly put out a cigarette in her boyfriend’s eye, according to court records.
The attack, cops say, occurred Monday as Underwood and Jeremy Hughes were arguing in the home they share in St. Albans, a city in Kanawha County.
As the pair squabbled, Underwood jammed a lit cigarette into her beau’s eye, police charge. When cops arrived at the residence in response to a destruction of property complaint, they summoned an ambulance, which transported Hughes to a local hospital for treatment of an injury to his left eye.
Hughes complained to police that he "did not have sight in his eye."
Pictured above, Underwood--who is facing a felony malicious wounding charge--is being held at the South Central Regional Jail in Charleston. She is scheduled for a September 22 preliminary hearing.
