A Durant woman has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after police said she stabbed her husband during a domestic dispute.
Charged Monday was Sandra Lynn Wilson-Hale, 27. She is accused of stabbing her husband, Ryan Wilson, in the back.
Durant Police responded Saturday evening to an apartment in the 1200 block of North Second Avenue. According to an affidavit by Sgt. Rocky McDaniel, there was a kitchen knife in the parking lot and a blood trail was found that led to an apartment where more blood was observed.
McDaniel then went to the Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma to interview the Wilsons. A doctor was putting stitches on Mr. Wilson’s wounds, so McDaniel spoke to Mrs. Wilson, who said Mr. Wilson had been arguing with her and that he grabbed her by her hair, according to the affidavit.
McDaniel then went to Mr. Wilson’s hospital room to question him, and according to the affidavit, he said his wife was in the shower when her phone rang. He answered it and an unknown man asked for Sandra. The caller hung up when Mr. Wilson identified himself as Sandra’s husband.
The affidavit states that Mr. Wilson said an argument began after he confronted his wife and she told him she would cut his throat while he was sleeping. He said she then walked into the kitchen area, grabbed a large knife and said, “You’re going to die.” Mr. Wilson said he put his hand up as she stabbed him in the back.
According to the affidavit, a struggle began and she stabbed him in the top, left shoulder. Mr. Wilson told police that he grabbed the knife, pulled it out and ran outside where he threw it under a sport utility vehicle.
The affidavit states that Mrs. Wilson’s stories did not show any truth that was consistent with evidence found at the scene, and that McDaniel’s investigation revealed the stabbing was a planned act and not a defensive act. According to police, this was not the first time the couple had been involved in a domestic disturbance, although this was the first time a weapon had been used.
