Renee Irene Tucker, 42, was arraigned at about noon Nov. 25 before Judge Michael McNally. Her bond was set at ten percent of $50,000. She is charged with one count of domestic violence, one count of aggravated assault and one count of felonious assault.
Trenton police responded to two emergency 911 calls made by Tucker at 8:12 p.m. and 8:14 p.m. She told the dispatch officer that she and her boyfriend were fighting in their apartment and that her boyfriend "was armed with a knife and was cutting himself to make it look like she had done it," according to a Trenton police report.
When officers arrived, Tucker was sitting outside on a porch step and her boyfriend exited the front door bleeding through his white t-shirt. Police said the man was in "obvious pain and had several lacerations on his chest and arm," according to the same report.
Trenton firefighters treated the man and said he had over ten wounds, with two being significantly deeper near his heart and lung area, and scratches on his neck and the back of his forearms.
The man told police, "Tucker had come at him and he balled up after being stuck with something sharp," according to the report.
Tucker told police she and her boyfriend were arguing in their apartment about her wanting him to move out, when the boyfriend allegedly pushed her into a wall and a television stand, which knocked over a small television onto the floor.
Police asked her where the knife was and Tucker said she did not know and denied seeing the man cutting himself or ever seeing him with a knife.
Officers said she had blood on her index finger and middle finger, but could not find any cuts or places where she would have been bleeding.
Tucker is being held at the Trenton Police Department and awaiting transfer to Wayne County Jail.
The man was treated by the Trenton Fire Department at the scene and transferred to Oakwood Southshore Medical Center where he was admitted for observation.
