BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WLNS) - A Battle Creek woman is awaiting formal charges Friday morning accused of stabbing and critically injuring 63-year-old Thomas Blige.

Officials say it was a domestic dispute that happened Thursday morning. According to police the 5o-year-old woman, an ex girlfriend of Blige, stabbed him in the neck during a fight.

He was rushed to a hospital in Kalamazoo where he underwent emergency surgery and remains in critical condition.

Police say they found the woman in a nearby apartment with blood still on her clothing.
