An Indiana woman is now behind bars after cops found her husband bleeding from a stab wound to the chest on Friday. At around 11:30 a.m., they’d found him sitting and leaning against a tree with a blood-soaked t-shirt held against his chest.

He says he’d gone to pick up doughnuts for his wife, 37-year-old Michelle Nelson, but the store didn’t have the ones she usually gets. When he went back home sans doughnuts, she allegedly “got upset at him for not know[ing] what else she liked after being together for several years,” according to the report.

The victim told authorities that the argument had escalated, and that he’d tried to leave, but she’d blocked the door. He tried to push her out of the way, and that’s when she allegedly lunged at him with BBQ grill fork, which punctured his chest.

He says he pulled the fork out of his chest and left. She then reportedly followed him out, continuing to yell at him.

He was taken to a hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

He was told by cops that he might be charged with battery.

The couple’s child was taken into custody by the Indiana Department of Child Services.

Ms. Nelson has been preliminarily charged with aggravated battery and booked into the Floyd County jail on a $75,000 cash bond.
