Danielle Jones, 23 is in hospital following a brutal attack on Valentine’s day by a new roommate.
She had advertised for a roommate on Craigslist, when she made her final decision on 35-year Byron Mitchell.
After just a few days of moving in, Mitchell attacked Jones as she was preparing to go out for her birthday.
The attack left Jones with severe brain injuries and a scarred face.
Mitchell was arrested and booked into the Metro West Detention Center. He has been charged with attempted murder and is claiming self defence, claiming Jones came at him first with a knife.
