Louis DeJesus and his wife Crystal’s Valentine weekend argument in West Hartford, Connecticut, went from bad to worse. Sometime on Saturday night after the couple was arguing, DeJesus grabbed the couple’s wedding cake knife and stabbed his wife in the eye. She already had a protective order against Louis.
Shortly thereafter he proceeded to stab himself eight times. Police were either called by neighbors who heard the fighting or by the couple themselves. Both were taken to the hospital, Crystal has since been released.
Louis DeJesus remains at the hospital under police protection and faces numerous charges from first-degree assault to unlawful restraint. It has not been determined why he sought the couple’s wedding cake knife when they had been married for some time and clearly were not happily married, according to sources.
