Posted on in Criminal Defense

KerryA 42 year-old Westmount woman has been charged with first-degree murder for stabbing her husband to death. Lisa Davis is currently being held on $2 million bail, accused of killing 49 year-old David Davis.

According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, Davis called 911 at 7:29 p.m. and reported that her husband had been stabbed. She allegedly told dispatchers that she was the one who stabbed him. When police arrived at the scene, they found David Davis bleeding from a knife wound to the right side of his stomach.  He was still conscious when they got there and told he told police that it was his wife who stabbed him. Paramedics transferred to him Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove but died from his injuries at 11:36 p.m.

Police say that the couple had been involved in a verbal altercation and at some point during the argument, Davis grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed her husband with it. Lisa Davis told police she "stuck" her husband with a kitchen knife during the argument.

The couple had no children together. David Davis worked as a carpenter and Lisa Davis works in customer service. Police said there were no records of any prior domestic incident calls to the couple’s home.

In Illinois, a conviction of first-degree murder carries a penalty of life without parole or 20–60 years. If you have been charged with a serious crime, contact an experienced Illinois criminal attorney today to represent and defend you.
