Woman allegedly stabbed husband for drinking her beer

A woman from Fayette County, Pennsylvania, is facing charges after state police say she stabbed her husband for drinking her beer. Tracey Giffin, 45, is accused of stabbing her husband, Joseph Giffin, inside their home in North Union Township on Sunday night.

When state police arrived, they said Joseph Giffin had blood on his chest and stomach that was coming from cuts to his neck, chest and head. "(Joseph Giffin) related that he was drinking with the defendant and she had gone to bed.

"She had gotten up and was upset that he had drank one of her beers," state police wrote in an affidavit of probable cause. "He related (that) an argument took place, and she then grabbed a pair of scissors. He related (that) she then put cut marks on his chest, neck and head. He related (that) she then bit him on the arms and thumb."

Tracey Giffin was taken to the Fayette County Jail in lieu of posting bail. Tracey Giffin was also arrested in 2013 after state police said she fought with her then-boyfriend, William Balas, over barbecue sauce. Investigators in that case said Balas apparently forgot to pick up the condiment from the store on Christmas Eve and that when he returned home, a physical fight occurred. Balas and Giffin were charged after police said Balas hit Giffin and she bit him.

Good grief. Sounds like this guy was a gnat's eyelash away from getting his carotid severed.
