A Westmoreland woman was arrested last Wednesday after allegedly threatening to kill a man.

Tonya Michelle Troutt, 49, was charged with aggravated domestic assault.

According to the arrest report, Macon County Sheriff’s Department deputy Jake Ayers was dispatched to a Maple Lane address in the western portion of the county in regard to a domestic incident involving a knife.

When Ayers arrived, Westmoreland Police officers were already on the scene.

The victim stated that Troutt woke him up, had a knife behind her back and said that she was going to kill him.

When Troutt moved the knife in front of her, he took it from her.

Troutt admitted to having a knife and displaying it.

The victim said that Troutt has a history of mental issues.

Troutt’s bond was set at $5,000, and her court date is slated for June 2.
