Police said Mary Katherine Atkinson, 32, tried to kill her stepdad with an ax because he was playing gospel music.



 A North Carolina woman attacked her stepfather with an ax because she was sick of him blaring gospel music, police in Mount Holly said.

Mary Katherine Atkinson, 32, “snapped” as 72-year-old Reginald Robinson sat down to watch the late evangelist Adrian Rogers on television on Sunday, the Gaston Gazette reported.

“I need a police car and an ambulance. My daughter just banged my husband, her stepdad, with an ax,” the woman’s mother told a 911 operator, according to a tape obtained by WSOC-TV.

The woman had been upstairs with her mother when Robinson urged her to stop “taking the Lord’s name in vain” and cursing, the Gazette reported.




Atkinson told her mother she was “going to cut him up with the ax” before rushing downstairs and allegedly attacking her stepfather.



 “She came in and the attack started. I was just baffled to see it happen,” he told the Gazette. “God was with me, and I was able to subdue her.”

Robinson need stitches after the frantic attack opened a wound on his head. Atkinson had lived with the older couple for about a year, but had recently changed.

“The last several days there seemed to be some difference in behavioral patterns,” he told the paper. “It was just sort of out of the blue.

It was very bizarre, very scary,” he added. “Something snapped. I’m not sure what happened.”

Atkinson has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill and is held at the Gaston County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Atkinson’s mother visited her in jail, where the distraught woman told her mother she doesn’t remember the incident. The couple is concerned for her mental health, Robinson told the paper.

“I’m hoping that we can get some help for Katie and that we can get this all squared away,” he told the Gazette.
