A Gatesville woman turned herself in on monday after she was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for stabbing her husband.

According to police, on December 28, around 4:01 p.m., Gatesville Police were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of N. 18th Street in reference to a man being stabbed. Once officers arrived on scene, they detained a female, later identified as Johanna Lynne Herrin.

Officers then made contact with the victim, who stated that he and his wife, Herrin, began arguing. That's when Herrin allegedly attempted to stab him with a butcher knife. The victim told officers that he was able to knock the knife out of her hands and barricaded himself in the bathroom. He said that Herrin grabbed a smaller knife, broke through the bathroom door, and managed to stab him in his left arm. The victim then ran across the street and asked a neighbor to call for help.

The victim was transported by ambulance to Coryell Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

When talking with Herrin, she claimed that she stabbed the victim in self-defense, and she was not initially arrested. Officers continued with their investigation, and on December 30, they filed a complaint charging Herrin with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon-Family Violence. She turned herself in that same day and was booked in to the Coryell County Jail.
