The pain of infidelity can be gruesome, but there is no excuse for resorting to violence. A woman has been arrested for killing her husband for cheating on her. Tyra Holmes, 26, found text messages on her husband Michael’s cell phone and the messages appeared to be from another woman. This led her to finally figure out that he was doing things he shouldn’t be doing in her marriage, leading her to take his life.
The incident occurred after the two got into an argument over the source and nature of the messages, with her eventually going into the kitchen and grabbing a knife. He grabbed her at the top of the staircase, trying to get her under control. That’s when she stabbed him in the chest.
“You stabbed me,” he said. Realizing what had just happened, the husband and wife told each other, “I love you.”
Shortly after being stabbed, the man died in the hospital. Holmes has been arrested for first-degree murder in the death of her husband Michael, who died at the age of 35. The woman is being held without bail.
“He was good to her and his kids and she murdered him for a senseless reason, a senseless reason, she took the life of my brother for a senseless reason,”Alexis Jewell, Michael’s sister, said to NBC Miami.
Holmes says that she blacked out after she raised the knife to her husband. But she admitted that she stabbed him and simply couldn’t control her actions. Her sister took the kids initially, because Holmes feared losing custody. She was accused of neglect last fall. But the kids are now in foster care, as the two year marriage ended in tragedy.
