From Cops: Wife Attacks Sleeping Husband with Meat Cleaver (KTLA News, 11/19/08):
VICTORVILLE — A local mother is accused of attacking her sleeping husband with a meat cleaver.
Officials say 33-year-old Olivia Geatian hacked at her husband’s head three times with a meat cleaver as he slept early Sunday in the couple’s Oro Grande home.
Geatian appeared in Victorville Superior Court Tuesday where she was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence and attempted murder charges.
San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Stella Hodson says the couple’s children were asleep in another room and didn’t see the attack.
Authorities have not released the ages of the children.
Witnesses at the scene reported there was a party at the home earlier.
When deputies arrived, they noticed Geatian was intoxicated, officials said, and arrested her for domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon.
The District Attorney’s office later filed attempted murder charges against her.
The woman’s husband was hospitalized at St. Mary Medical Center where he received numerous staples and stitches to his forehead.
He was also able to speak to deputies and tell them what happened.
