Woman throws cross; strikes husband

By Bonnie Culverhouse

A verbal altercation between a married couple ended when the female threw a cross at her husband.

Erin Nichole Fenimore, 40, of the 3200 block of Evergreen Road, Minden, is charged with domestic abuse battery.

Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker said his deputies were dispatched to the Evergreen Road residence around 9 p.m. Sunday.

“Dep. Richard Mitchell and Lt. Coby Barton made contact with the female who admitted the verbal altercation with her husband,” Parker said. “When the deputy asked if anything physical happened, she said no.”

Deputies then spoke to Fenimore’s 18-year-old son who said his mother removed a cross from the wall, threw it at his father and struck him.

“The son said he never saw his father strike his mother,” said the sheriff. “Deputies then spoke to a juvenile daughter who said she was in her room for the beginning of the altercation and therefore didn’t see anything physical.”

The subject’s husband reportedly said they were drinking when argument started.

“He said his wife took the cross off the wall and threw it at him, striking him in the leg,” Parker said. “Deputies observed a swollen spot on his leg consistent with his and his son’s stories. They did not observe any markings on his wife.”
