— A Rock Hill woman is in jail after police say she stabbed two people this weekend during an argument at an apartment complex.

Kimberly Ann Morris, 47, is charged with two counts of assault and battery. She is at the Moss Justice Center on a $15,000 bond.

Morris called police early Sunday to report someone had a gun at the apartment off Patriot Parkway. Police located a 9mm pistol in a back bedroom. During the investigation, Morris got into an argument with Max Morris, 49. The altercation ended and police took the weapon, according to a Rock Hill police report.

Several minutes later, while police were outside, they heard yelling coming from the apartment.

Police then met a 25-year-old woman, Tara Linthicum, who was bleeding from her earlobe. She claimed Kimberly Morris stabbed her then stabbed Max Morris in his chest, according to a Rock Hill police report.

Kimberly Morris came out of the apartment, handed the officer a black folding knife, confessed to the stabbings and then crossed her wrists and told the officer to take her to jail, the report states.

Max Morris was treated on scene and Linthicum was taken to Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.
