A woman has appeared in court accused of cutting her sleeping husband's neck and shoulder with a power saw.
Officers who arrived at the home in Everett, Wash., say they could hear the victim shouting: "You tried to cut my head off. You're going to jail."
The Daily Herald reported the 43-year-old woman appeared in court Monday on a charge of domestic violence assault and a judge kept her bail at $250,000. The newspaper did not identify her.
Police say the woman told officers she grabbed the saw Friday night because an intruder escaped out her daughter's window.
Sgt. Robert Goetz said a child lock prevented the window from opening more than a few inches. "There was no evidence there was an intruder," he told the Daily Herald.
The home's front and back doors were also locked, police said.
The 36-year-old man was treated at a hospital. The Daily Herald reported that the victim also said he had been wounded with a hatchet.
