Husband Is Allegedly Stabbed By His Wife

A Laurel County woman is in jail after police say she stabbed her husband in the back with a steak knife.

Officials with the Laurel County Sheriffs Department say 36-year-old Michelle Smith and her husband, 46-year-old Gilbert Smith, were fighting at their London home last week.

A detective says the couple was arguing about who should go buy beer before the stabbing.

Michelle Smith was charged with first degree assault and tampering with evidence.

Gilbert Smith was airlifted to UK Medical Center for treatment but is back home now.

Michelle Smith will be in court next Tuesday.
