Khaleaya Cherry chases husband with knife and threatens to slit mother’s throat

29-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier Khaleaya Cherry was involved in an altercation with her husband, Jeremy McKenzie, and mother, Denise Bray, at Fort Sumter Drive on February 11th. After returning home from a date night, the couple got into an argument in their bathroom, leading to McKenzie calling his mother-in-law to de-escalate the situation. McKenzie turned away to leave the bathroom to get some space, but Cherry punched him in the back of his head. He continued on his way out of the room and went downstairs with Cherry still pursuing him. While downstairs, Cherry went to the kitchen, grabbed a large knife, and began to chase McKenzie back up the stairs. McKenzie was able to make it back to their bedroom and lock himself in. Cherry then went to her mother’s room and began an argument with her as well. During the argument, Cherry started punching her in the face while still holding the knife. Cherry then put the knife to her mother’s throat and said that she would kill her. Officers made contact with Cherry, who stated that nothing got physical with her husband but wouldn’t go into detail about what happened with her mother. Khaleaya Cherry was taken into custody and charged with two counts of aggravated domestic assault.
