LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 51-year-old Lincoln woman who stabbed her husband with a fillet knife as he napped has been sentenced to five to 10 years in prison.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1Q299F6 ) that Teresa Gillispie was sentenced Friday.

Gillispie tearfully asked for probation for the attack on her now ex-husband, who was her high school sweetheart and husband for 32 years.

Gillispie’s attorney said she had begun to experience serious mental health issues when she attacked her husband.

Prosecutors say Gillispie suspected her husband of cheating when she stabbed him as he slept on Jan. 25, 2015. He suffered six stab wounds to his chest, side, back and left forearm and thumb before he was able to escape and call 911.
