PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - A Port Charlotte man is charged with stabbing his wife shortly after a marriage counseling session ended last Friday.
50-year-old Jean Napolean is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Investigators say they arrived at the scene shortly after 5 p.m. to a home in the 1300 block of Truval Terrace where they found the victim with cut wounds to her arm, stomach and back.
The family deacon, Andrea Dallemand, said he had been in the home counseling the couple and that the suspect had shown no signs of anger. He told investigators that Napoleon was very upset and worried that his wife was going to leave him and that she was cheating on him.
"She yelled 'you gonna kill me,'" said Dallemande. "And then when I get inside I run to go inside I saw him with a big knife, a big knife, he's already stabbed her."
When Dallemand went outside to move his vehicle screaming started coming from the home. They found the victim with blood stains on her shirt. He saw Napolean holding the knife to himself. Their daughter talked her father into putting the knife down before deputies arrived.
Jeanwell bonded out of jail and Dallemande says Jeanwell's wife is out of the hospital.
