Mary J. Blige’s Father’s Attacker Charged with Attempted Murder

Over the weekend Mary J. Blige’s father was stabbed in the neck by his former girlfriend during a domestic dispute.  The girlfriend has been charged with attempted murder.

From The Miami Herald: 

 

A woman accused of stabbing the father of singer Mary J. Blige has been arraigned on a charge of attempted murder.

A judge set $500,000 bond Friday for Cheryl White of Battle Creek. Police say she stabbed 63-year-old Thomas Blige in the neck Thursday outside his Battle Creek apartment. He’s in critical condition at a Kalamazoo hospital.

Police say Blige was attacked while confronting White, who was deflating his vehicle tires. Defense attorney Jeff Schroder says self-defense will be White’s likely defense.

Schroder tells the Battle Creek Enquirer that White and Blige had dated for five years.
