September 16th, 2012 in News

A Fulton woman is in custody after threatening to harm her children and boyfriend early Saturday morning.

Karrena L. Carter, 26, was arrested on charges including endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful use of a weapon after the Fulton Police Department responded to a domestic disturbance call at her Churchill residence at approximately 2:20 a.m.

According to an FPD press release, an investigation into the incident revealed that Carter had arrived home from a bar and was holding a knife to the chest of her sleeping boyfriend, 28-year-old George Olivarez. When Olivarez woke up and took the knife away from her, Carter then allegedly grabbed a second knife and threatened to harm the couple's two children while standing over their 4-month-old child with a steak knife, which Olivarez also took away from her.

"He (then) went into the kids' room and locked the door until we got there," said Sgt. Stan Holt

Carter was placed under arrest and charged with armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, second degree domestic assault and endangering the welfare of a child. She is being held at the Callaway County Jail on $29,500 bond.
