Woman Sentenced For Stabbing Husband Over Child-Unfriendly Comedy Show

Woman stabbed her husband in the back with a kitchen knife.

A woman in the republic of Chuvashia who stabbed her husband to death in front of her children over a New Year's Day television show has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

The marital spat erupted when the man put on a comedy show which his 35-year-old wife deemed inappropriate for their two children, the regional investigative committee said Tuesday in an online statement.

During the course of the argument, the man fell to the floor and his wife stabbed him in the back with a kitchen knife, in full view of the children, aged five and twelve.

The man later died of his wounds in the hospital, the statement said.
