Porn star Bridget Powers who goes by the name Bridget the Midget could be looking at 15 years of jail time for stabbing her lover.
Powers who has dwarfism and whose real name is Cheryl Murphy was arrested last month in Las Vegas after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend Jesse James in the leg with a butter knife after the two had a heated spat.
According to a Clark County criminal complaint obtained by TMZ, Murphy was charged with burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon, battery with use of a deadly weapon constituting domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon — which are all felony charges.
The burglary charge alone could land her in prison for over a decade. According to the tabloid, the prosecutors alleged that she went into James' home with the intention to commit a crime.
The other two charges could also add to her sentence by up to five and six years respectively. The incident reportedly took place after Murphy found James in bed with an unnamed woman and allegedly also tried to stab her.
James was taken to UMC Trauma and has since been released. His injuries were not said to have been deadly.
Murphy became enraged after the woman allegedly picked her up and threw her out, according to the tabloid. In a video obtained by them shot on September 18, she is seen fuming in the parking lot screaming.
"I have nothing more to lose Jesse. You took it all from me!" she screamed. Another woman from the home comes out later in the video and calls James her boyfriend. She then says that "there's blood everywhere, please call the cops!"
The police reportedly responded at 2.31 am and she allegedly told them that it was her "fault" and that she "did it all" and "should go to jail", reported KTNV. She had added, "Yeah, I did stab him."
Murphy allegedly stabbed him after entering his home through an unlocked door and drove a knife through his leg while he was sleep.
He told the police that he had been out drinking with the other woman and had come home to sleep. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for November 7.
