EDINBURG, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — A man is in the hospital after his wife allegedly stabbed him in the leg several times with a kitchen knife.
Edinburg Police responded to an apartment complex on S. Veterans yesterday just before 4 p.m. That's when a husband and his wife were reportedly arguing before the stabbing happened.
Officials say the wife stabbed her husband in the upper part of his leg six times with a knife. The man was taken to McAllen Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.
The wife was in custody for aggravated assault, but Newscenter 23 has learned she was released this morning pending further investigation.
The husband's injuries may have been self-inflicted, but nothing is confirmed at this time.
