A 24-year-old resident of the northern Negev stabbed her husband to death overnight Wednesday. Police said that the Beduin woman claimed that her husband had abused her and the couples' five children over several years, culminating in the incident on Wednesday in which the 27-year-old man threatened to strangle her and one of their children if they wouldn't let him sleep. She admitted stabbing her husband with a kitchen-knife before escaping from the house. The man's brother took him to hospital where he died of his wounds.
