    James, let's just blame the victim here. Would you say the same thing if it were a man who stabbed his wife in the back? Why don't we simply blame this on the probability that they are both too young to deal with marriage and there exist issues with anger control.

    I bet they'll end up back together, for the next few rounds, soon enough. It's so sad how these situations perpetuate themselves.

    She should have bought "The Ex Knife Holder" and that would have been all she needed. Stab that and not the hubby.

    I wonder how many times her husband beat her before she finally decided to fight back.

    There will be more to this story. I hope no children were witness to this behavior. No plea deals when the facts come to the table please. Plea deals aren't making a constructive difference anymore in our society. Please follow sentencing guidelines.
