HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) -

A Hamden woman was arrested after police said she stabbed her husband with a knife at their home early Friday morning. 

Police charged 30-year-old Sheila Gilbert-King with first-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor. 

The arrest of Gilbert-King comes after officers were called to a report of a domestic dispute on Newhall Street around 4:30 a.m. Upon arrival, officers found 30-year-old Travis King at the front door, who collapsed shortly after their arrival. 

Travis King was rushed to Yale-New Haven Hospital with what police called "a puncture wound in the chest."  His condition was not released by police. 

A short time later, police found Gilbert-King hiding in the basement where she was arrested. The couple's small child was in the home, but police said the child was asleep during the incident. 

Gilbert-King will be arraigned at Meriden Superior Court on March 13.
