UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania woman charged with criminal homicide in the stabbing death of her boyfriend on Christmas Day in 2018 has taken the stand to assert that she acted in self-defense. The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard reports that 28-year-old Dominique Jones alleged Friday that the stabbing at the Holiday Inn Express in Uniontown followed years of abuse by 25-year-old Tre Montel McCargo. Fayette County prosecutors, however, earlier characterized her as a jealous and angry woman who believed the victim was cheating on her after she looked at his cellphone. Jurors were expected to return to court to hear closing arguments and begin deliberations.
