Wife Accused Of Slitting Husband’s Throat While He Slept Claims She Was Dreaming Of Filleting Fish

Judy Jones had a really fishy explanation for why she slit her husband’s throat.

The 44-year-old is charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault for slicing her husband Thomas Jones’ throat while he slept. At her arraignment on Monday, she told a judge that she hadn’t meant to kill her husband — she blamed the incident on a dream she was having about filleting fish.

The couple’s daughter told a different story. According to the 16-year-old, her mother had been planning to kill her father for about a year. It was the girl’s call to 911, after she found her father’s throat slit, that might have saved his life.

“She made threats that she was going to kill him,” said Sheriff Fred Abdalla. “And she almost did early Saturday morning. So she’s been charged now with the prosecutor handling the case got her charged with felony 1s and 2 for attempted murder and aggravated assault.”

And as for Mr. Jones? He’s in the hospital recovering.

“He’s got stitches from almost [ear to ear] so we just have to wait for it to go through the court system,” Abdalla said.

Nobody was taking Judy Jones’ story hook, line and sinker, and investigators report that she eventually admitted to her murderous intentions. Due back in court tomorrow. Jones is being held on half a million dollars bond.
