Emily Javier, 30, lived with her boyfriend, Alex Lovell, in their Washington home, until she attempted to murder him. When she was arrested, she told officers that she plotted his death because she had recently found some things that led her to believe that he had been cheating on her. She discovered that he had been using the popular dating app, Tinder, he had long scratches down his back, and there was even red hair in the drain.
Javier decided then that she wanted to make Lovell pay for his perceived crimes, and she began to plot the murder over the course of the next week. At the mall, she found the samurai sword that she used to attack him. She waited for the right time to strike, but things finally came to a head one night when Lovell returned home and ignored her. When he went to bed that evening, she attacked.
After slicing his throat multiple times with the samurai sword, she called 911 and begged them to come save him. Lovell was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but is expected to survive the attack. Javier, on the other hand, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder. Her bail amount has been set at $35,000. As for Lovell, a GoFundMe has been set up in order to help raise money for his medical bills.
