'Til Aggravated Battery Do Us Part: Woman Accused Of Stabbing Husband Four Days After Wedding

When most people get married, they’re filled with visions of years of happiness with their new spouse.

However, that apparently wasn't the case for 31-year-old Gennifer Yoakum, who is accused of stabbing her husband several times at a bar in Salisbury, Illinois, on Nov. 18 -- after just four days of marriage, The State Journal-Register reported.

The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening, according to police. 

Yoakum may face charges of aggravated battery and unlawful use of a weapon.

Deputies responded to a call about a car crash near the bar, and Yoakum was found in the driver’s seat. A short while later, her husband arrived at a nearby hospital with stab wounds.

Yoakum had sustained a small cut on her hand.

It’s currently unclear what prompted Yoakum to allegedly stab her husband.
