MOSCOW MILLS, MO (KTVI)-A Lincoln County woman is in custody facing murder charges in a Moscow Mills stabbing death. Lori Pults is charged with first degree murder of Clifford Craig.

Investigators say Pults told them Craig had cut her arm with a knife Sunday night. She says she managed to get the knife away from him and hid in a hallway.

After checking on her son, she told police she “weighed it out”. She returned to the living room and jumped on Craig who was laying in a recliner and stabbed him twice in the chest.

Investigators asked why she didn't just go to a neighbor's house. She reportedly responded, “I don't want to murder him at someone else's house.  I am going to murder him right where he's at."

Pults is being held without bond.
