DAILYKENN.com -- Danielle Jones, 23, was beaten and her face slashed on her birthday.
Arrested fro the crime was the roommate she had found on Craigslist, 35-year-old Byron Mitchell.
Reports say Mitchell had moved in with Jones about a week before the attack occurred.
The victim remains in a coma with brain injuries. It is not known if she will ever emerge from the coma.
I she survives, Jones will need intensive care; perhaps for life.
The crime occurred in Miami, Fla. and was reported Feb. 20, 2016.
A young woman from Miami has been in a coma for a week after her family said she was attacked by her roommate, a 35-year-old man she met on Craigslist.
Byron Mitchell assaulted Danielle Jones, 23, just a week after he moved in with her in a downtown Miami apartment, Jones's mother, Aimee Nikolove, said.
He strangled her and cut her up on the night of her 23rd birthday, NBC reported.
Jones has a brain injury, multiple scars on her face and neck and Nikolove doesn't know if or when her daughter will wake up.
'I'm still in shock, I can't comprehend that someone can do this to someone, mutilate them in such a way and try to kill them,' she told NBC.
'My daughter's face is cut up like he was going to take her face off. She has a brain injury, no one knows what the prognosis is.'
Imagine the media firestorm had the races been reversed.
