WASHINGTON (AP) - A D.C. woman has been acquitted of fatally stabbing her former boyfriend after an argument over whether he had allowed her enough space on her bed.

The Washington Post ( reports that a D.C. Superior Court jury on Thursday found 50-year-old Patricia A. Cave acted in self-defense in the stabbing of 36-year-old Lamont Warren.

Prosecutors say Cave became angry when Warren refused to slide over on the bed to make room for her on June 2.

Cave's attorney, however, argued that Warren became angry when Cave tried to move him and that he choked her.

Authorities say Cave stabbed Warren with a knife that was on her nightstand. Cave had been charged with voluntary manslaughter while armed.
