Authorities in Texas are investigating a domestic violence incident in which they say a woman stabbed her husband and left him for dead before driving her three children into a nearby lake.

Police and the local fire rescue responded to a call at 7:48 a.m. Friday from a man claiming to have been stabbed by his wife, the Carrollton Police said in a statement.

Police in nearby Lewisville then responded to reports that a woman — later confirmed to be the wife of the stabbed man — had driven a vehicle into a lake with her three children inside, the media release continued.

The woman and the children – ages 8, 9, and 12 – were taken to the hospital, where she was subsequently taken into custody “pending criminal charges.”


The mother is believed to have driven her three children into a lake before all four were taken to the hospital.

One child remains in critical condition, while the other two are stable, police said.

The suspect’s husband is also expected to survive.

When reached by The Post Friday afternoon, the Carrollton Police Department said the suspect and victims’ names are not yet being released.
