A fight between a boyfriend and girlfriend in Wyoming County ended with her being axed and left clinging on to her life.

50 year old Lenora Ellis was flown to CAMC and is still in critical condition.  Police arrested her boyfriend, 46 year old Tracey Stewart.

Neighbors told 59 News the couple was in love and they say their violence comes out of no where.

"Something like this I never thought was going to happen. I know they do have arguments and quarrel but as far as going this far, no I never would have dreamed it would go this far," said neighbor Delmas Toler.

Stewart is charged with attempted murder and malicious wounding. He's currently in the Southern Regional Jail.

The investigation is ongoing and Oceana police say more charges could follow.
