LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A northern Kentucky man has been accused of attempting to decapitate his girlfriend with a sword.

Covington police said in a news release Wednesday that on Feb. 6, a woman told responding officers that she and 39-year-old Terry Phillips had gotten into an argument and he tried to cut her head off with a samurai-type sword. The sword had struck her in the arm, causing a serious injury. Police say she is expected to survive.

Authorities arrested Phillips at a Lexington home on Tuesday evening, charging him with attempted murder and assault.

 It is unclear whether Phillips has an attorney.

    Seems that the Islamic tradition of beheading is spreading! Could it be that the demonic spirit is spreading?

    God bless!
