Everett, Washington, Oct 19: Police in Everett, Washington state, say a woman is accused of cutting her sleeping husband's neck and shoulder with a power saw.


Officers who arrived at the home say they could hear the man shouting: “You tried to cut my head off. You're going to jail.”

The Daily Herald reports the 43-year-old woman appeared in court Monday on a charge of domestic violence assault and a judge kept her bail at $250,000. The newspaper did not identify her.

Police say the woman told officers she grabbed the reciprocating saw Friday night because an intruder escaped out her daughter's window.

Sgt. Robert Goetz says there was no evidence of an intruder and a child lock prevented the window from opening more than a few inches.

The 36-year-old man was treated at a hospital.
