CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A South Texas woman has been charged with aggravated assault after police say she stabbed her common law husband because he wouldn’t get out of bed.

Officers were called on Wednesday to a Corpus Christi home where the husband told police that his common law wife, 39-year-old Melinda Hinojosa, had hit him on the head with a pot and punched him three times in the face.

Police say the man told officers that Hinojosa then grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him in his left hand.

Hinojosa was arrested. She is being held in the Nueces County Jail on a $30,000 bond.

Jail records did not list an attorney for her.

Police say Hinojosa’s husband declined medical treatment for his injuries.
