JENNINGS — A Leesville woman was arrested Sunday after authorities say she stabbed her boyfriend during a domestic disturbance.

Jennifer Rene Braxton, 38, was arrested by the Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office on charges of aggravated second-degree battery and battery of a dating partner.

Braxton was arrested after deputies responded to an incident on Interstate 10 near Lacassine in which a female reported she had stabbed her boyfriend.
