St. Cloud, Minn (KNSI) - A St. Cloud woman is in jail, accused of biting off part of her husband's ear during an argument.

Court records state that police were called to the 200 block of 7th Avenue South on Friday by a woman who said she was arguing with her husband.

Arriving officers found the apartment littered with broken dishes, the furniture out of place, and blood in several rooms.

The most blood was found in the bedroom, where a chunk of the man's ear was found.

Initially, the man said he got into a fight downtown, but later admitted that the two had gotten into an argument over beer and that she attacked him.

Jamie Elrod was arrested and taken to the Stearns County Jail, where she's being held on charges of 1st degree assault-causing great bodily harm.

Court records state, in a jail phone conversation, the 37-year-old admitted to her mom that she bit her husband's ear, and it ripped off when he pulled away.

She's being held on $30,000 bond.
