If you are going to attempt to murder your husband, why on earth would you choose such a gruesome end to ones life? First of all, there would most definitely be no way of claiming that this was self-defense and I’m pretty sure neighbors would either hear the power saw or man’s screams.
Police were called to Hoyt Avenue in Everett, Washington, on Friday, and found the unnamed 36-year-old still alive but his head and neck covered in bloody cuts.
When officers arrived at the family residence they allegedly heard the husband screaming at his wife: ‘It was you, it was you - you tried to cut my head off. You’re going to jail.’
Obviously, she wasn’t too successful seeing as the man was heard SCREAMING at his wife. She was taken away and charged with domestic abuse. Sadly, I would have assumed that attempting to cut someone’s head off was more along the lines of attempted murder, but I guess I am wrong.
When interviewed by police the 43-year-old insisted that she had grabbed the power saw in the dead of night as she thought she heard an intruder escape from her daughter’s window.
However, sergeant Robert Goetz indicated that there was no sign of a break-in – a child lock prevented the window in the child’s room from opening more than a few inches.
In addition, both the front and back doors were locked from the inside.
He said: ‘There was no evidence there was an intruder.’
The husband had lacerations on his neck and the woman who claimed to have wounds on her arms, had none. Again, how did you see yourself getting away with this? Even if his head had been cut off, you would have one gruesome ass crime scene and no alibi.
