COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Charges will be dropped against a woman accused of nearly stabbing a man to death almost three years ago.
According to authorities, Curtis Greene was stabbed on Easter in 2011 in a trailer park off Best Lane, which is outside of Whiteville.
They said deputies were called to the home for a domestic dispute. According to investigators, Greene had a chair and Jasmine Gore, his girlfriend at the time, had a knife.
Greene was taken to the hospital to be treated for stab wounds where his family claims he told doctors Jasmine Gore was responsible for his injuries.
Jasmine Gore claims she acted in self defense. Now, three years later, Assistant District Attorney Fred Gore said there isn't enough evidence to prove otherwise.
Greene's family, however, is not convinced. Until recently, Greene had not been able to remember much about the night he was stabbed.
"Curtis is remembering some things that happened to him, and it's not just one side of the story," said Greene's father Larry Williams.
Greene said because of his injuries he's had to relearn everyday tasks, from speaking and walking to using the bathroom on his own.
The knife used to stab him was described as being so long it punctured the left side of his heart.
Greene could still have an opportunity to tell his side of the story. According to Assistant District Attorney Fred Gore, the dismissal gives authorities the ability to indict Jasmine Gore again if more evidence is discovered.
"Sometimes, unfortunately, justice is cases being dismissed and not every case can be followed up to the extent the victims want it to," explained ADA Fred Gore.
