A Florida woman is under fire this week after she allegedly stabbed her fiance dead because he wouldn't give her a cigarette.

Yolanda Stills, 43, was arrested Saturday morning in connection to the stabbing death of her 56-year-old fiance, Ricardo McMillian, according to WJXT.

Stills allegedly went on a rampage when her beau wouldn't hand over a cancer stick.

"She wanted a cigarette from him, and evidently he wouldn't give her one, so she went and retrieved a 10-inch butcher knife and stabbed him," Lt. Rob Schoonover of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office told the station.

McMillian was found in the front yard of his apartment with several stab wounds. He was taken to the hospital where he died.

Stills was charged with murder and is being held at the Duval County Jail without bail.

Cops told the station that Stills and McMillian had been living together for months, and neighbors said nothing about them was unusual.

Stills, on the other hand, is used to visits from the police. She's reportedly been arrested 34 times and has faced several charges, including armed and aggravated assault, and most recently a protection order violation, the Florida Times-Union reported.

She spent 42 days in jail for that charge, and was released in January.
