Police say a Michigan woman bit her friend’s ear off in what she claimed was a twisted game of role play in which she was a wolf and her friend was a vampire.
During Allison Thompson Weaver’s preliminary court hearing on Tuesday, details of the Sept. 17 incident started to unfurl.
According to video footage of the court hearing obtained by CBS affiliate WFSB, Weaver, 44, and her 48-year-old friend were discovered partially nude and drenched in blood. They were located at an apartment complex in Rochester Hills, Mich.
“This is very unusual. This is one of those cases that will be once in a lifetime for deputies.”
Weaver reportedly told a deputy who responded to the incident that the two were performing a consensual sex act.
During the hearing, the victim, whose identity has not been disclosed, told court she had invited Weaver over for some drinks and they had talked on her couch for hours. They’d previously been neighbours, she said.
“The fact that she just came straight out with a big kiss was a little out of character, I would say, for seeing someone right away,” the victim told the court, according to WFSB.
The victim testified that she went to bed, and Weaver stayed on the couch. Shortly after, she told court she woke up to find Weaver on all fours.
“She just lunged at me and started strangling me,” the victim said at the hearing.
“The next thing I remember is trying to get away and hearing her, as clear as day, with no reflection in her tone, just saying: ‘Sorry … but you’re gonna have to die today.'”
On the day of the incident, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office shared a link to an article covering the story.
“To say our deputies in the jail and on the road deal with some bizarre and dangerous situations is an understatement,” the sheriff’s office wrote.
According to local broadcast station WXYZ, Weaver is facing charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, assault with intent to maim, strangulation and second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The station reports that at the time of the incident, deputies said Weaver appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
