MIAMI - A woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend in the eye with two needles during a fight.

Sandra Jimenez, 44, and her boyfriend, Miguel Tellez, reportedly had an ongoing argument about him looking at other women.

According to police on Saturday, November 25, shortly after returning home Jimenez jumped on top of Tellez, who was lying on the couch, with two rabies needles that were for their dogs in hand. She then reportedly pierced his right eyelid with the needles.
