COLUMBIA — A Cole County prosecutor has charged a Tipton woman for stabbing her estranged husband Sunday afternoon.
Jefferson City police officers responded to a call about a stabbing in the 300 block of Cherry Street. When they arrived, officers found a man with two stab wounds who had lost a lot of blood. He was stabilized and taken to University Hospital in Columbia. He identified his attacker as his estranged wife, Alexus Munson.
