After beating and stabbing his estranged girlfriend multiple times, investigators say a man forced the victim to clean up the blood.

On Nov. 10, a woman went to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office with “multiple stab wounds,” according to the probable cause affidavit.

The woman said she heard something on her back porch and thought it was a little dog that had been hanging around.

When she opened the door she said her estranged boyfriend, 49-year-old David Burnett of Cherry Valley, forced his way in and started hitting her.

The victim told deputies she tried to run from him, but Burnett grabbed something and hit her in the head with it.

She said he then “got a kitchen steak knife and began stabbing and striking her with it approximately 12 times from the head down the torso,” the court documents said.

After he finished beating and stabbing her, the woman claimed Burnett “began ordering her to clean the apartment by scrubbing the floors on her hands and knees.”

Once the apartment was clean, he then forced her into her car and drove to Centennial Bank where he removed $500 in cash.

He then drove to the Citgo on Highway 49 South to fill up her vehicle.

When a man came outside to get in his car, the woman ran to his vehicle and pleaded for help.

“She stated the man said he would give her a ride to the police station and they left the store,” the affidavit stated.

On Monday, Nov. 13, District Judge Dan Stidham found probable cause existed at the time of his arrest to charge Burnett with battery in the first degree, aggravated robbery, and kidnapping.

The judge ordered Burnett to be held without bond and told him to appear in circuit court on Dec. 27.
