Many couples have experienced disagreements in their relationships. While these scenarios may lead to heated arguments, they may rarely culminate into threats or acts of physical violence. Unfortunately, a 54-year-old woman has been arrested and is facing multiple domestic violence charges following a recent incident in which she allegedly stabbed her husband with a knife in Wisconsin.
According to reports, the incident took place as the two were taking part in recent holiday celebrations. Police claim that around 3 a.m. they received reports of a domestic dispute in which an argument between a couple had turned into a physical altercation. Upon arriving at the location, they claim to have found a man who had suffered a chest wound, and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.
Law enforcement agents assert that during the argument, a woman had picked up a knife and stabbed her husband and his motorcycle. She was taken into custody and is facing numerous charges, including attempted first degree homicide and reckless endangerment of safety. The penalties for similar charges are severe, and if convicted, the woman could be facing consequences that could have a significant impact on her life.
Facing domestic violence charges of this nature can be a stressful and daunting process. With the potential gravity of a conviction, those who stand accused of similar crimes may find it advisable to seek guidance from an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help a client in Wisconsin make informed decisions about his or her case and provide guidance on the best course of action to take during subsequent legal proceedings.
