Moscow Mills Woman Charged With Boyfriend’s Stabbing Death
An eastern Missouri woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death during a dispute last weekend at their home.
Prosecutors in Lincoln County charged 42-year-old Lori Pults on Monday with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. She remained jailed Tuesday without bond.
Investigators say Pults called 911 on Sunday night to report that she had stabbed 45-year-old Clifford Craig Jr. at their home near Moscow Mills.
Authorities say Pults reported that Craig cut her arm with a kitchen knife, but she managed to get that knife from him and later stabbed him twice in the chest while she said he pretended to be asleep in a recliner.
Online court records don't show whether Pults has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.
