RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - An autopsy has found 123 stab wounds and cuts on a woman who police say was stabbed by her husband after he said he awoke from a dream with blood all over him.

WRAL-TV reports it obtained the autopsy report for 29-year-old Lauren Phelps which details 24 stab wounds and 20 cuts to her head and neck as dozens of wounds to her torso and arms.

In a 911 call, Phelps’ 27-year-old husband, Matthew, told the operator he took more cold medicine than he should have Sept. 1 and woke up after his dream with blood all over him and a knife on the bed he shared with his wife in their Raleigh home.

Matthew Phelps is charged with first-degree murder.
