DILLON - Not guilty pleas have been entered on behalf of a 45-year-old Polaris woman charged with stabbing her boyfriend and threatening to kill her mother during an argument over how much beer was left in the refrigerator.

Cynthia Green appeared before District Judge Loren Tucker in Dillon on Thursday. She is charged with two counts each of felony aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and misdemeanor partner or family member assault.

Green is accused of stabbing her boyfriend in the armpit and puncturing his lung during a fight on April 29. She also allegedly threatened to kill her mother with a large butcher knife. Court records say Green had been drinking tequila.

Because the defense requested a psychiatric evaluation, the court entered the pleas on Green's behalf.
