Sibling rivalry can occasionally lead to a fist fight, but rarely does it lead to a sister biting off another sister’s nose, but that is exactly what happened between Lluvia Rodriguez and her sister.
Back in July, Rodriguez, 29, and her sister, Ivon, went out to a club. When they returned home, Rodriguez began arguing with her husband. Attempting to diffuse the situation, Ivon tried to pull her sister away from the fight. Instead, Ivon ended up in a fight with her sister as well.
According to Officer M. M. Wallace of the Houston Police Department’s Special Crimes Unit, Rodriguez then bit down on her sister’s nose, “severing it and detaching her nose from her face.”
Click2Houston says the injured sister was rushed to Ben Taub Hospital. Doctors were thankfully able to reattach her nose.
Though the incident occurred on July 14, police did not charge Lluvia Rodriguez until last week. She is now facing changes of aggravated assault of a family member. The charge is a second-degree felony with a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
Rodriguez remains in jail and while Ivon says she has forgiven her sister, she’s not upset she remains in jail. A protection order is still pending and bond has not yet been set.
