Regelsperger pushed him and then he pushed and slapped her. She then got a steak knife from the knife box and stabbed him in the right forearm area.

She told officials her husband was unwilling to show any affection towards her and that he did not care about the medical conditions she was going through. She then admitted she "lost it" and stabbed him, according to the statement.
