AIKEN, S.C. (AP) - An Aiken woman has been arrested after authorities say she stabbed her husband following a fight over the television remote control.

The Aiken Standard reports that 60-year-old Cynthia Pruitt Siau was arrested Tuesday and charged with attempted murder.

Police say they were called to the home Siau shares with her husband, 60-year-old Louis Harrell Siau III, at around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Louis Siau was standing in the yard and was covered in blood. He told authorities he and his wife had been drinking and that she stabbed him in the head and back with a kitchen knife after they fought over the remote control.

It wasn't known if Cynthia Siau had an attorney. Her husband's condition wasn't immediately available.
