Woman Charged with Stabbing Her Husband

A woman was arrested Monday and charged with stabbing her husband several times about the body and throat, according to the V.I. Police Department.

Officers were called to Aqua Bistro in Coral Bay about 8 a.m. Monday to investigate a reported assault. There they met with the Emergency Medical Service and V.I. Fire Department personnel who were treating a male victim for multiple stab wounds about the body and throat.

The victim was uncooperative and refused to provide officers with any information regarding the altercation that he was involved in, police said. However, V.I. Fire Service personnel told the officers that before the police arrival, the man had said his wife stabbed him multiple times in an attempt to kill him.

Officers were then able to locate and question the victim’s wife, Sally-Ann Medina, who admitted to the attack. She was arrested and charged with third-degree assault/domestic violence and remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending her advice of rights hearing.
