LinkAntoinette Gilkes stabbed her boyfriend in the throat over a frozen pizza, police say.
Greenacres officers found Ismael Perez, 22, lying on the floor of a blood-spattered kitchen in the home he shared with Gilkes at 3683 Mil Lake Circle, near Military Trail and Lake Worth Road, according to a report.
Gilkes, also 22, called police about 10:40 a.m. Sunday to say her boyfriend was bleeding profusely after she'd stabbed him with scissors. She said he "leaned into" them during an argument.
Perez was rushed by Trauma Hawk helicopter to Delray Medical Center, where he later died.
On Sunday morning, she said, she and Perez argued and he taunted her. She knocked a slice of pizza out of his hand and his dog began to eat it.
She said Perez then grew angry and placed her in a choke hold from behind. Gilkes said this happened often during arguments and she didn't fear for her safety.
Gilkes said Perez returned to the kitchen, removed another pizza from the freezer, and began to cut the plastic with scissors.
She said she grew angry and grabbed the pizza and scissors, telling him to buy his own food.
Gilkes said Perez again placed a choke hold on her from behind.
She said she swung wildly and Perez shouted, "You stabbed me."
He handed her a cellphone and told her to call 911.
When told Perez had died, Gilkes became emotional and told police she wanted to kill herself, a report said.
A judge this morning ordered Gilkes held without bond, charged with murder.
