Police: Ohio woman bites off part of husband's lip


ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) -- Police say a northeast Ohio woman arguing with her husband about ending their marriage bit off a portion of his lip.

According to media outlets, an Elyria police report says the husband of 26-year-old Ameryst Blaylock told officers she said "If you don't want me, I am going to make sure no one wants you" before biting off the right side of his lower lip.

Blaylock is charged in Elyria Municipal Court with felonious assault and domestic violence in the alleged Thursday attack and was released on a recognizance bond.

Officers found the bitten-off lip on a couch next to a cigarette. The report says doctors were unable to reattach it.

A message seeking comment from Blaylock's attorney was not immediately returned after business hours Friday.
