(Scroll down for video) A woman became angry with her boyfriend for breaking up with her on moving on in life without her, according to police in California.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 40-year-old Erika Christine Deherrera, after being accused of slashing the throat of 55-year-old Robert Johnson.

Deherrera has been charged with one count of attempted murder. She was booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail, and her bail has been set at $500,000.

According to the police investigation, Deherrera and Johnson lived together for many years. Johnson said that he suffered many years of abuse from his girlfriend, and he decided to break up with her.

Deherrera did not like the fact that Johnson left her, and plotted to kill him. One day, Deherrera lured Johnson to a hiking trail, and they sat down near a lake in Bishop Peak on Foothill Blvd.

Deherrera then asked Johnson whether he wanted a back massage. Johnson agreed, and while she was giving him the massage, Deherrera pulled out a boxcutter and sliced his throat.

Johnson managed to flag down a driver in the area, who helped apply pressure on his 7-inch-long cut. Johnson was rushed to the Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
