Threesome Ends With Stabbing Over Refusal to Switch Positions

A not-so-amorous threesome ended in a stabbing and the arrest of Ashley Hunter, one of two men involved in the sex tryst. The other man, Orlando DeWitt, was taken to the hospital.

Hunter and DeWitt apparently met in prison and had been out partying with several women, reports The Smoking Gun.

They left a South Dakota bar with a woman named Leticia last Friday. During the night, DeWitt and Leticia began having sex on the living room couch.

Hunter eventually joined the action and wanted to switch positions with DeWitt. That's when things turned violent.

When DeWitt and Leticia were alone on the couch having sex, Hunter was spying on them from a bedroom, the victim claims.

It's not clear if Hunter was invited, but he apparently joined in and received oral sex from Leticia. However, that was not enough for Hunter, who asked to switch positions with DeWitt.

DeWitt declined and in the process called him a name, which infuriated Hunter. Hunter then reached into the couch and retrieved a 12-inch butcher knife, reports The Smoking Gun. (Because where else would you keep a butcher knife?) DeWitt and Leticia fled in the nude, but DeWitt wasn't quite fast enough to escape harm. Hunter allegedly stabbed him on the back of his left arm.

Hunter has been charged with felony aggravated assault for the stabbing.

Aggravated assault is generally punished more severely than a "regular" assault due to its seriousness. Factors that can raise an assault charge to an aggravated assault charge typically include the use of a weapon, the status of the victim, the intent of the perpetrator, and the degree of injury caused. In addition, assaults which happen in the victim's home can also qualify as an aggravated assault.

For the threesome that ended in a stabbing, Ashley Hunter was booked into jail with bail set at $5,000, according to The Smoking Gun. His next court appearance is set for March.
