OKLAHOMA CITY -

Formal charges have been filed against a man who reportedly stabbed a woman and was then shot by the victim's 11-year-old daughter back in September, 2014.

Leonard Demon Henry, 25, was charged in Cleveland County District Court on Monday, January 12, 2015. Formal charges include assault and battery with intent to kill, first-degree burglary and maiming.

On September 24, 2014, Oklahoma City police officers were dispatched to the Cleveland County home in south Oklahoma City in reference to a domestic incident, according to the affidavit filed with charges.

Henry had apparently broken into the home through a sliding glass door. The victim's room was barricaded with a dresser, but he was able to get the door open, the affidavit said.

The woman was in the room with five children. Police said Henry grabbed the woman by her hair and began stabbing her in the head and face with a knife. He then began to drag her across the room when she yelled for her 11-year-old daughter to get the gun and help, records stated.

At that point the victim was stabbed in the left eye, causing her to lose all vision. She remembers hearing Henry begin pleading with the child not to shoot, but then heard several gunshots, the affidavit said.

Afterwards, the children told the woman Henry left.

Records show the victim had stab wounds on her head, face, neck and both hands. Doctors who treated her said she will lose normal function of her eye and possibly lose the eye altogether.

A week prior to the incident, the victim had filed a police report with the accusation that Henry had been molesting their children. She had also filed a protective order against him, records show.
