LORAIN — A woman who bit off part of her husband’s lip in March 2012 is behind bars again, this time for allegedly attacking him in their home.

Lorain police responded to a call at 9:16 p.m. Thursday in the 2000 block of Washington Avenue after a man had locked himself in a closet, trying to escape from his wife.

Police found the man, Thomas Blaylock, with blood pooled underneath his eyes because his wife, Ameryst Blaylock, 28, same address, attempted to gouge out his eyes.

The report stated that “she was digging her nails” into his eyes.

Blaylock told her husband, “Look what I did to your lip; I can take your eyes, too.”

In March 2012, Thomas Blaylock told an Elyria Municipal Court judge that he still loved his wife and asked for the no-contact order to be lifted so the couple could attend counseling sessions together.

At the time, the couple resided in Elyria.

According to Thomas Blaylock, the heated argument Thursday ensued after he told his wife he wanted to end their marriage.

Ameryst Blaylock was charged with domestic violence. She is in Lorain County Jail and has a court appearance Monday at Lorain Municipal Court.

    According to the Kabalarian Philosophy, which documents the powerful influence of names:

    “As Ameryst you are rather serious-minded, responsible, and stable.

    You have the gift of tact and diplomacy, and possess a charming, easy-going nature which endears you to others.

    You have a serious desire to understand the heart and mind of everyone,
    and could be very effective in a career or in volunteer work where you
    are handling people and serving in a humanitarian way.

    This name also gives you a love of home and family, and as a parent you would likely be fair and understanding.

    You remember the thoughtful little expressions of affection and
    appreciation that mean so much to others, and you have the ability to
    create a warm and loving environment.

    However, you tend to put things off and avoid facing issues because of a lack of confidence and uncertainty.

    You often need encouragement from someone before you can come to a decision.

    This name creates a generally well-balanced and healthy nature, but any
    weakness in the health would cause problems in the fluid functions,
    such as kidney or bladder trouble, overweight, or swelling of the legs
    and ankles.”

    So much for the Kabalarian Philosophy.
