A Miami woman accused of stabbing her husband with a Swiss Army knife broke down in screaming hysterics on Monday after being denied bond.
“Blanca Regalado faced Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat where he denied her bond after she admitted to stabbing her husband multiple times at their home,” WSVN.com reports.
Bound to a wheelchair because she claims her husband broke her leg, Regalado repeatedly screamed, “Please don’t!” as bailiffs attempted to remove the panicked woman from the courtroom:
WSVN.com provides some details on the woman’s case:
Late Friday night, police responded to 1800 N. Bayshore Dr. Apt. 4201 where they found Regalado's husband suffering from several stab wounds. Paramedics transported him to a local hospital where he remains listed in stable condition.
Authorities took Regalado into custody.
According to the arrest form, Regalado told police she stabbed her husband because he abused her, and he had a drinking problem. Miami-Dade Police Officer Freddie Cruz said, "She did make spontaneous statements to our officers that she is tired of him, so she stabbed him, and he is a drunk."
