MAGEE, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate is accused of stabbing his girlfriend while he was out of jail on a weekend pass.

Multiple media outlets report Magee Police Chief Randy Crawford says Carl Hoskins was serving a 15-year sentence at the Scott County Sheriff’s Department for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. He was given the three-day pass on March 18.

Magee police say officers were called Sunday to an apartment where Hoskins was staying for a domestic disturbance report.

Police say they found Hoskins’ girlfriend with multiple stab wounds in the head. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries. Crawford says the victim has been released.

Authorities say Hoskins is back in jail and is facing new charges. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.
