FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - A Florence police officer has been credited with saving the life of a man who says his 71-year-old wife stabbed him multiple times and then sprayed him with paint.

Florence Police Chief Ron Tyler tells news outlets that the unidentified victim is recovering after the Wednesday night attack, while his wife, Patsy Witt Dixon is facing charges.

Police spokesman Sgt. Brad Holmes says officer Zach Maxwell responded to a 911 call and rendered medical aid until paramedics arrived and likely saved the man’s life.

Authorities say the husband and wife were arguing about Facebook activity when Dixon stabbed the man with a kitchen knife and then sprayed him numerous times with spray paint.

Dixon is charged with first-degree domestic violence and first-degree assault. It is unclear whether she has an attorney.
