Woman allegedly claims devil told her to stab husband for 'worshiping' NASCAR

CHURCH HILL — A woman who allegedly drove her car into a church Sunday night and then stabbed her husband in the chest at the altar because he was "worshiping the NASCAR race at Bristol" also reportedly made numerous statements about her conversations with God and the Devil.

Stephanie Faye Hamman, 23, 230 Silver Lake Rd. Apt I-11, Church Hill, allegedly told police God told her to drive through the front doors of Providence Church on Silver Lake Road, and that the devil was in her.

According to a report filed by CHPD Chief Mark Johnson, Hamman called her husband Steven Hamman after the crash, and when he arrived and found her on the church altar, she allegedly attempted to stab him in the heart. Mr. Hamman had been at home Sunday night watching the race on TV.
