AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend after yelling at him for eating all of the salsa has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

Ronnie Buckner told officers 50-year-old Phyllis Jefferson yelled at him in March at his apartment for finishing off the salsa. Buckner said Jefferson then picked up a pen and jammed it in the left side of his pelvis.

The 61-year-old Buckner said he tried to catch a television that Jefferson had knocked over when she grabbed a small kitchen knife and stabbed him in the stomach.

Jefferson's attorney, however, says the stabbing happened because she just learned her boyfriend was a registered sex offender.

Cleveland.com reports (http://bit.ly/1N8Fusi ) Jefferson pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on Monday. She'll be sentenced later.
