RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - A teacher is facing burglary and assault charges.

Richmond Police arrested Tamara Mills, 38, on Friday.

They say she showed up at her estranged husband's home and began to attack a woman inside.

Her estranged husband, Josh Mills, told police he was able to get Mills out of the home, but that she broke several windows in a door to get back in.

"She tried to start attacking us again," Josh Mills said. "I can't believe as far as it did."

He was at his Norwood Drive home Friday night with his current girlfriend. "I guess Tamara doesn't want to let go, but we've been separated for quite a while now," said Mills.

Officer's found Tamara at Baptist Health in Richmond where she was being treated for cuts to her hand.

Officials with Madison County Schools confirmed to WKYT that Mills is a kindergarten teacher at Kit Carson Elementary.

The school had no comment on her arrest, but said no disciplinary action had been taken.
