WHEELING, W.Va., Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A West Virginia woman who allegedly slapped her sister in the head with a spatula from an outdoor grill is facing a felony malicious wounding charge.

Stephanie Platt of Wheeling was taken into custody after the alleged fight with her sister.

When Ohio County sheriff's deputies responded after getting a call about a fight, they found the suspect and her sister spattered with blood.

According to Platt's sister, the 24-year-old spit on her and shoved her after they got into an argument.
