A fight over two cell phones containing potentially incriminating messages led to the arrest of a wife on a charge of aggravated assault of her husband, according to police reports.
The husband said he returned from a trip to Peru and found two hidden cell phones at home with messages about wanting to leave and being in love.
When he confronted his wife and he threatened to seek a divorce, she allegedly became enraged and began kicking the door he was behind and screaming. The couple’s two children, ages 7 and 10, were home at the time, according to police reports.
At 10:58 a.m. Friday, she allegedly got a knife from the kitchen. According to the reports, the husband said she “raised the knife above her shoulder and stated I’m going to kill you and the children and myself.”
Police responded to a 911 call that hung up.
Lina Husein, was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault without intent to kill. She was handcuffed and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
