MACON COUNTY, Ill. (AP) -- A central Illinois man is accused of trying to kill his female roommate for eating three Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies he apparently wanted.

Allen Hall, 23, of Decatur, is charged in Macon County with attempted murder and aggravated domestic battery.

Police said Hall got angry Wednesday when he found out his 49-year-old roommate ate three Chips Ahoy cookies for breakfast and threatened to kill her.

At first, the roommate said she thought Hall was joking, but told police Hall then tried to choke her in a bathtub. Her husband and the landlord ended up separating the two.

Hall remained jailed Saturday on $75,000 bail.
