In October 2018, Lucius stabbed Adrienne Wurts over a dozen times.

Wurts said she went to the Walton Store one evening to meet Lucius so she could get the title of her car from him.

She said when he went to give her a hug, he started stabbing her. Wurts said she fought back and her hands were injured when she held the blade of the knife. She had to get stitches.

Wurts was in the courtroom to watch the sentencing.

“It is just, and honestly I am doing really good now, and he might have changed my life, but he didn’t ruin it,” she said.

Wurts also said she hopes any woman in an abusive relationship realizes that it’s time to walk away.
