Woman allegedly hit husband with cooking pot before stabbing him for not getting out of bed

A woman is in jail after she attacked her common-law husband because he would not get out of bed, police said.

At about 12:30pm on Wednesday the 37-year-old man called police after he had an argument with the woman at the apartment they share in Corpus Christi, Texas. When officers arrived he told them they had been fighting because he would not get out of bed.

The man told officers the woman hit him on the head with a cooking pot, punched him in the face three times with her fist, then she grabbed a kitchen knife. The woman then allegedly stabbed the man in his left hand.

The man refused medical treatment and officers arrested Melinda Hinojosa, 39, on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Hinojosa remains in Nueces County Jail. Her bail was set at $30,000, jail officials said.
