U.S. & World

MEMPHIS, TN (WCMH) — A Tennessee woman is accused of stabbing her husband to death after he asked for a divorce.

David Perkins was found lying dead from a stab wound in front of the house he lived in with Teresa Post, a woman he had just married in November.

Keith Corliss who owns and lives in the house he shared with the couple, told WMC-TV they had been arguing in the bedroom. He said Perkins wanted a divorce.

“He walked out the door with his tool bag and about three minutes later knocked on the door and said Teresa we need to stop. He walked down that step down to the sidewalk and he just fell over. Teresa said call 911,” said Corliss.

Corliss said he called for help but couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

“I didn’t even know he was stabbed until the ambulance and fire department got here.” 

Police say they found a kitchen knife in the front yard, and Post admitted to the stabbing.

She was booked into jail on a $200,000 bond.
