A Middle Valley woman has been charged with stabbing her husband during an argument overnight, authorities said.

Hamilton County deputies were called to 938 Wesley Drive shortly before 1 a.m. to find that Joseph Davies had been stabbed at least twice with a knife, sheriff's office spokeswoman Janice Atkinson said in a news release.

Davies told officers he had argued with his wife, Angela. She spilled a drink in the bed and he told her she couldn't have anything more to drink, then went down to the basement.

She followed him and stabbed him, according to the statement.

Davies went to a neighbor's home to call police and was taken to a local hospital. There was no immediate word on his condition this afternoon.

Angela Davies is in the Hamilton County Jail on a charge of attempted first-degree murder, Atkinson said.

Alcohol and our culture of violence is blind to race, color, religion or creed. But, I will say this: For every one of these stories we see, how many others are published that fit the general descriptions you have listed?

Tis the season for domestic violence related crimes. More than likely there is more to this story. Always remember innocent until proven guilty.
