LITTLESTOWN, Pennsylvania — The ‘until death do us part’ bit couldn’t come soon enough for this fed-up wife.
A Pennsylvania woman has been charged with stabbing her husband as he slept because she was tired of him smoking medical marijuana and said she was disappointed when cops told her he had survived the attack.
Palma Ann Conrad, 70, told police her 69-year-old husband, Richard Conrad, 69, had been smoking pot for health reasons and she had gotten “sick of it,” so when she saw the knife she decided to kill him, the Hanover Evening Sun reported.
She then plunged a knife into face, chest and neck as he slept in a recliner.
As he lay there bleeding, he asked her to call for help, so she dialed 911 and told the operator her husband was dying. When cops arrived, they found her covered in her husband’s blood and sporting a black eye.
They then found Richard Conrad lying on the living room floor, with his face covered in blood and asking for help. He told officers he had awoken to his wife stabbing him and punched her in the face in an effort to get her to stop.
He was flown by helicopter to York Hospital where he underwent surgery and was expected to live.
Palma Conrad told cops that the idea of killing her husband had “rattled around” in her mind for about a month and that she was disappointed to hear he was still alive, authorities said.
She had been charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted criminal homicide and aggravated assault, and has been held on $100,000 bail.
