Shortly after an MCSO deputy responded to the home, Baker-Andrews was located and detained in handcuffs. The female victim then stepped outside the residence while holding a dishcloth to her left shoulder, according to the MCSO report.

The deputy observed an open wound on the victim’s shoulder and noted in the report that the laceration was “about the approximate size of a quarter.”

The victim told the deputy that Baker-Andrews is special needs and “does not know what she is doing.” According to the victim, Baker-Andrews became upset when she was reminded of a doctor’s appointment that was scheduled that day at a doctor’s office that she did not like.

Prior to the 911 call, the victim stated that Baker-Andrews went outside the residence and began pacing back-and-forth. Baker-Andrews then came inside and requested a knife because she “needed to cut something outside,” according to the MCSO report.

The victim told the deputy that she suspected Baker-Andrews wanted to use the knife for some other purpose. After the victim refused to give Baker-Andrews a knife, she stated that Baker-Andrews asked for a cup out of the dishwasher.

Since the victim knew that there were more knives inside the dishwasher, she stated that she told Baker-Andrews to get a cup out of the cabinet. The victim advised that Baker-Andrews walked towards the cabinet and spotted a knife in the sink.

The victim advised that she attempted to grab the knife but Baker-Andrews obtained it first. According to the victim, Baker-Andrews proceeded to stab her in the left shoulder, which caused the laceration. The victim then wrestled the knife away from Baker-Andrews.

The deputy observed that the victim also had a slight cut on one of her knuckles.

The deputy made contact with Baker-Andrews. In the MCSO report, the deputy noted that Baker-Andrews appeared to be of sound mind since she successfully answered several competency questions.

After being read her Miranda rights, Baker-Andrews told the deputy that she stabbed the victim. She advised that she had previously wanted to stab the victim and “decided to do it.”

Baker-Andrews informed the deputy that she stabbed the victim because she was tired of the victim “messing with her.” She admitted that she pretended to look for a cup in the kitchen while actually looking for a knife so she could stab the victim, according to the MCSO report.

The deputy noted in the report that Baker-Andrews admitted to knowing the difference between right and wrong, and she “knows what she did was wrong.” Baker-Andrews told the deputy that she does not feel bad about stabbing the victim.

Baker-Andrews was arrested and transported to Marion County Jail where she is currently being held on $5,000 bond. She is facing a felony charge for aggravated domestic battery with a deadly weapon.

A court date has been scheduled at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 7, according to jail records.
