A woman was angry with her cheating boyfriend and took her anger out on a teddy bear.

Carly Marra of Wyoming, is facing jail time after allegedly stabbing a white 5-foot tall teddy bear given to her by her boyfriend and saying: “I wish this was you!”

Prosecutors in Casper charged Marra with aggravated assault, battery and possession of a controlled substance. According to a police affidavit, Marra had been in a relationship with a man named Jordan McAlexander.

The two have a 16-month-old child together. Marra and McAlexander had problems in their on-again off-again relationship when Marra accused her boyfriend of cheating on her.

The two got into a fight, and McAlexander tried to leave the house. However, Marra did not allow him to leave and allegedly grabbed a knife. She stabbed the teddy bear before going after him with the knife.

McAlexander managed to push his girlfriend into the bathroom and he called police. Marra was arrested and charged. She was later released after paying $5,000 bond.
