A woman accused of slicing her husband's neck allegedly told police she was just having a dream about filleting fish.

Judith Irene Jones, 44, is charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault, WTRF reported. Police were called to Jones’ home in Dillonvale, Ohio on Saturday morning, after the couple’s 16-year-old daughter reported that Jones stabbed her father in the neck.

Responding officers found Jones' 49-year-old husband with his neck cut open. While Jones allegedly gave the dream excuse, police records indicate that she has threatened the life of her husband multiple times in the past.

“I’ve seen stabbings before, but I've never had anybody tell us that they were dreaming that they were filleting fish when they committed a crime,” Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla told WTSP.

The victim was taken to a hospital. His condition is unknown.
