Report: Winder woman stabs rival she discovers ‘straddling’ her beau

This gives new meaning to back stabber.

A Winder woman stabbed a female rival in the back after she came home and found the woman ‘straddling’ her beau, according to a report in the Huffington Post.

Tammi Jo Pirkle, 45, stabbed the woman on Sunday, according to a report in the Huffington Post.

Police did not identify the 44-year-old stabbing victim, but she initially told responding officers she had fallen on glass, the report says.

But the victim told responding paramedics a different story — that the back injury was a stab wound. When officers pressed her, the woman faked intoxication and wouldn’t answer them directly, according to the report.

Finally, the woman reportedly confessed to police that Pirkle stabbed her in the back after she “came in and found me on top of her boyfriend straddling him.”

And where, you ask, was the boyfriend? According to the news report, he told police he didn’t witness the stabbing, because when an angry Pirkle burst through the door he “jumped on the floor and hid under the bed.”
