Wife stabs husband with ceramic squirrel after he comes home without beer
A woman was allegedly so incensed that her husband came home without beer on Christmas Eve that she stabbed him with an ornamental squirrel.
Helen Ann Williams, 44, from South Carolina, was arrested and charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
A police report says that Williams’s 41-year-old partner went out on Tuesday night to buy groceries but because the shops were closed he came back empty-handed, NBC reported.
She is then alleged to have grabbed a ceramic squirrel, struck him over the head with it before stabbing him in the chest with the item.
The husband made a call to the emergency services using a neighbour’s phone, after which police arrived finding blood across his clothes and body, as well as on the hands of Ms Williams.
She is being held on a $10,000 (£6,000) bond and will face the charges at Charleston County Circuit Court in April.
