A WOMAN has been arrested for allegedly attempting to murder her husband by stabbing him in the side with a pair of scissors in Elche (Alicante).
The incident is believed to have taken place during a dispute over inheritance.
Local Police agents entered the flat and saw the man sitting on the sofa next to a pool of blood.
He was bleeding from his head and applying pressure to his side with a cloth to pack the stab wound.

The wife’s version was that her partner had hit her on the face with the flip-flop and that she had stabbed him to defend herself.
Emergency services also attended the scene and took the man to a nearby hospital.
The woman was arrested and taken to a police station.
