True story! CLICK HERE to read the article accompanying this headline.
An American woman has stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife in an argument that started when she accused him of opening a Christmas present early.
Misty Johnson, 34, of Rock Springs, Wyoming was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery, a felony, and misdemeanour domestic battery.
Her husband, Shawn Fay Johnson, 34, was treated at a hospital for a wound to the chest, police said.
Misty Johnson made an initial court appearance in which she requested a court-appointed lawyer, authorities said. She was released after posting bail, which was set at $US7,500 ($A8,760).
Authorities said Shawn Johnson called police to report that his wife had stabbed him. He told police that his wife started arguing with him over his opening a Christmas present, according to court records.
As the argument escalated, Misty Johnson accused her husband of having an affair, authorities said. Police found a marriage licence in the couple's apartment stating they were married in late September.
Police Detective David Thompson said he did not know what the present was, or if it was intended for the husband.
