Deputies say it happened in the couple’s home near 80th and Leighton Sunday night.

Officer say Teresa stabbed her husband, 51-year-old John Gillispie, six times in the chest, torso, forearm and thumb with a filet knife. 

They say he was napping at the time.

According to Officer Katie Flood of the Lincoln Police Department, Teresa suspected John of infidelity, which may have fueled the alleged attack.
