A fight over two cell phones possibly containing incriminating messages led to a woman's alleged threat to murder her family and to her arrest, cops said.

Lina Husein's husband came home Friday from a trip to Peru and found two cell phones with messages about Husein wanting to leave and being in love with someone else, according to TCPalm.

When he confronted his 30-year-old wife at about 11 a.m. and threatened to get a divorce, she allegedly went ballistic, kicking the door he was behind and screaming. Her 7- and 10-year-old children were home at the time, cops said.

Husein then grabbed a knife from the kitchen and "raised the knife above her shoulder and stated, 'I'm going to kill you and the children myself,'" according to police reports.

Cops responded to a disconnected 911 call coming from the house in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Lina Husein was arrested on an aggravated assault charge.
