Upon her arrest on suspicion of attempted murder, Hayashi said, “I didn’t mean to stab [him] in the abdomen. I intended to slash his leg, but I wound up stabbing him in the abdomen.”

Prior to the incident, the suspect got into a dispute with her husband, during which time he choked her with his hands. The incident took place after she retrieved the knife from the kitchen, police said.
