A Mesa woman was sentenced to three years probation after reaching a plea agreement in the stabbing of her husband over a Cosmopolitan magazine quiz.
Judge Sherry Stephens sentenced Noelle Clough to probation with domestic violence terms and 90 days deferred jail on Thursday.
In June, Clough called police and said that her husband was cut in the back and needed stitches, according to a police report. While on the phone, Clough said her husband was choking her and she pulled a knife on him.
When police arrived, the victim had a stab wound on his back.
Clough told police that she and her husband had been drinking before the fight began.
Clough said her husband threw two kitchen knives on the floor and told her to stab him, according to the police report. Clough said she picked up the 4-inch knife and tried to cut him, but accidentally stabbed him, police said.
