A Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, man stabbed his wife on Christmas morning and chased her out of the house before stabbing her again, according to police. The children in the home witnessed the killing.
The 35-year-old woman was later pronounced dead. The 33-year-old man, who was standing over her body, was taken into custody, WPVI-TV reports.
Six children were inside the house, ranging in ages from 8 to 16. One of the children, a 14-year-old, had stab wounds in the thigh. According to WPVI, “one of the children took the knife used in the killing, a butcher knife with a 10-inch blade, into the house in order to keep the suspect from stabbing anyone else. It was found in a second-floor bedroom.”
