Cell phone photos lead to argument, stabbing in Hernando, authorities say

BROOKSVILLE — A Hernando County woman was charged Friday with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after authorities said she stabbed her boyfriend in the back with a hunting knife.

Maryann Macnair, 47, was being held without bail at the Hernando County Detention Center.

At about 4:35 a.m. Friday, Hernando sheriff's deputies were called to 15086 Bailey Hill Road, northwest of Brooksville, where Macnair's live-in boyfriend, 51-year-old Ronald Kottwitz, said Macnair grabbed the hunting knife from under the bed and stabbed him during an argument over photos on his cell phone.

Kottwitz sustained a small stab wound in the lower portion of his back that required two staples, according to a sheriff's report. His right hand was also wounded when he tried to take the knife away from Macnair.
