An Evansville woman was arrested and charged with Domestic Battery with a Deadly Weapon after the Evansville Police Department says she attacked a man with a knife on Wednesday.

Police went to an apartment in the 300 block of SE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. for a reported stabbing on Wednesday night, where upon arrival, they made forced entry after being unable to contact anyone inside.

Inside the apartment, police say they found a large amount of blood on the floor and on the walls, along with an injured man and a woman, who was identified as 48-year-old Audrey Hurtz.

According to EPD, Hurtz claimed that she and the victim were attacked by someone in the living room.

After police asked Hurtz if they would see the alleged attacker come and go if they reviewed security camera footage from the apartment, they say she changed her story and said that the attacker came in through her fourth-floor balcony and fled the same way.

The victim told police that Hurtz was not the attacker, but they say he couldn't provide any reasonable explanation for his wounds.

After speaking to a third party who had said he had visited the apartment earlier on the same day and reviewing evidence, EPD says Hurtz was arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
