A woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend was held without bail this morning.

Mekorshia McComb, 23, who lists addresses in Vicksburg and Port Gibson, was arrested at about 6 p.m. Wednesday and charged with aggravated domestic violence, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

McComb is accused of stabbing her 30-year-old boyfriend his apartment at Whispering Woods, 780 U.S. 61 North, Pace said.

Sheriff’s investigators received the case from Vicksburg police Sgt. Beverly Prentiss who initially investigated the stabbing, which was reported as happening in the city limits, Pace said.
