Bozeman, MT -

A 53-year-old caregiver is charged with pulling a knife and threatening to kill a partially paralyzed Bozeman man.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports Elsie Evans McEntire of Bozeman was charged Wednesday in Justice Court with felony assault with a weapon. Her bail was set at $30,000.

Charging documents say police responded to a disturbance Tuesday morning. The man told police that he pays McEntire to assist him because he is paralyzed on the left half of his body and is in a wheelchair.

Court records say the two had been in a heated argument earlier and police told her to leave. The man told investigators the woman returned and they argued. He said she grabbed a knife from the kitchen and said she was going to kill him.
