A Pennsylvania woman has been arrested after allegedly stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife in a botched attempt to kill him over the weekend. Authorities say she told police she wanted him dead.

Marica Pejcic57 years old, is charged with one count of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in the Sunday afternoon incident in Manheim Borough, Pa.

According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by Lancaster Online, the assault occurred while the defendant’s husband was asleep on their couch. Pejcic is said to have pulled the blanket off her husband’s face before stabbing him first in his eyelids at around 2:30pm on the date in question. Police said the defendant stabbed the victim at least four more times in the face and head. In an interview, the man later told law enforcement that he couldn’t see what was happening during the attack due to blood in his eyes.

The alleged killer has clarified her efforts in the brutal attack, police said. Pejcic repeatedly told her husband she was going to kill him, according to the affidavit.

This simultaneous explanation of the accused’s alleged intentions squared off with some of her alleged previous statements, according to the victim. She told the police “she will kill [him] by cutting off his head like a pig,” the court document said.

Police said Pejcic himself would later confess to the crime and previous statements of violence. According to the affidavit, she admitted to the stabbing and said she wanted to kill her husband “when she gestured with her hand to her neck in a cutting motion.”

No alleged motive has been disclosed by law enforcement.

Based on Court records Reviewed by Law & Crime, she is currently being held at the Lancaster County Jail and cannot be released on bail. Pejcic has not yet requested a public defender and it is not currently known whether she has obtained a defense attorney.

Lancaster County Magistrate Judge Brian Chudzik set the defendant’s bail at $500,000 in her first settlement on Monday, March 21, 2022, Lancaster Online reported.

Pejcic’s next trial is now scheduled for April 1, 2022 before Judge Scott Albert.

The weekend attempt into the accused husband’s life comes amid a recent series of similar crimes that are making national headlines.

On March 10, 2022prosecutors in Idaho told Law & Crime that Mildred Nineth Rivero, 57, has agreed to plead guilty to one count of first degree murder. In that case, the defendant attempted to strangle her husband with a trash bag while he was sleeping in September 2021. In exchange for her plea, prosecutors dropped two additional charges against Rivero.

On March 11, 2022an indictment has been officially published against the New Jersey woman Michele Linzalone73 years old, with the murder of her husband in December 2021. The defendant in that trial argued that she had accidentally shot her husband while he was asleep – and while she was just “playing” with the gun. After the scene was shot, Linzalone said, she waited about 20-30 minutes “because she was in shock and she wanted to get dressed and brush her teeth.”
