An Evansville woman is accused of attacking her husband with a knife and a baseball bat in their home in the 3000 block of Crossbow Lane. 35-year old Stephanie Cruce is being held on charges of battery with a knife and domestic violence in the presence of a child. Her husband 39-year old Benjamin Cruce is being treated at St. Mary's Medical Center for multiple stab wounds. Deputies say he was found at the end of a large trail of blood in their house. They say she told them she was only defending herself when she swang the knife at her husband and didn't mean to slash him.
