A 29-year-old woman who police say fatally stabbed her husband in the neck during a fight in their Brooklyn home was charged with murder early Saturday.
Rochelle Watson-Stanley was taken into custody at her home on Howard Ave. near Blake Ave. in Brownsville after she called police around 10:15 p.m. Friday and confessed to the stabbing, authorities said.
The couple’s feud first took a violent turn when Watson-Stanley’s 51-year-old husband, who was not immediately identified, punched his wife in the mouth and split her lip, cops said.
Watson-Stanley responded by plunging a knife into his neck, according to police.
Medics rushed her husband to Kings County Hospital, where he died.
Neighbors on the ground floor of the two-family home overheard the pair arguing upstairs starting around 8 p.m. Friday.
The couple, who police said are married by common law, have two young children together, neighbors said.
Watson-Stanley was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon, cops said. She was awaiting arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court Saturday.
