Hutchinson Woman Bites Off Husband's Fingertip

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ Police say a Hutchinson woman bit off the end of her husband's finger during an argument at their home over the weekend.

And investigators believe 45-year-old Adelghun Khinde Johnson may have swallowed the fingertip because it was nowhere to be found. Lt. Clay Rothe said the woman hit her husband, David Johnson, three times and he pushed her away as they quarreled Saturday night.

Rothe said, "She then grabbed his right hand and bit the tip of the index finger off at the first joint. We could not find the finger.''

Police said Adelghun Johnson, a native of Trinidad, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery. She was released early Sunday on $5,000 bond.
