(Scroll down for video) A man is lucky to be alive after his wife stabbed him because she was fed up with his snoring.
Dawn Weiser, 44, of Arkansas, was arrested after she stabbed her husband several times because he was snoring, and then blamed his stab wounds on a stranger.
Officers were called to the couple’s home after Doug Weiser, 43, awoke around 3:30 am to his wife stabbing him repeatedly with a butcher knife.
Investigators said the victim managed to wrestle the knife away from his wife before their two teenage children, who heard screaming, came to his aid.
The victim told detectives that he and his wife had argued that night about his snoring. His wife slept in another room while he slept alone in their master bedroom.
During an interview with detectives, Dawn Weiser said that she woke up to a loud noise during the night and she went to investigate only to find her husband with stab wounds. She insisted that an intruder was responsible for the stabbing.
Investigator found that her husband’s snoring had apparently bothered Dawn Weiser so much that she repeatedly mentioned it on several of her social media sites.
She was booked into the Detention Center in Washington County and charged with attempted murder. She was released after posting $25,000 bond.
Doug Weiser was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for a ruptured spleen, punctured liver and three stab wounds.
Doug Weiser reportedly filed for divorce a few days later.
