Man stabbed over to-do list

South Salt Lake, Utah -- A man is in stable condition after being stabbed by his wife this morning. Police say the two were arguing over a to-do list.

Police say this is a domestic dispute that went way too far. Now one person is in jail.

At 6:00 this morning, police responded to a domestic dispute call from a home near 3600 South and 700 East. When officers arrived, they found a man who had been stabbed in his upper torso with a steak knife.

 Police say the man's wife, 27-year-old Jennifer Melvin, is the one who stabbed him after a confrontation about a to-do list she had created for him earlier that morning.

Gary Keller, with the South Salt Lake Police Department, said, "Some of these start with the craziest things. This began as just a regular squabble between husband and wife. She was making a list for him of things to do, and it escalated from there."

The victim was transported to an area hospital in serious but stable condition. He has since been released.

Police say this is not the first time they have responded to this address. In fact, they say they have responded to several domestic dispute calls between the couple in the past; however, this was the first one where one of the victims was stabbed.

Jennifer Melvin was arrested and booked on aggravated domestic assault charges. Police say those charges will be screened through the county attorney's office.

Police say there was evidence of physical contact between the couple prior to the stabbing, and they are looking into possible charges against him as well.
