Their Relationship was Described as “Remote”

Deloris Holley, 61, of St. Petersburg, Fla., is dedicated to the Monday night TV crime thriller, The Closer. But David Marion, her husband, had hoped to watch a little Monday Night Football. When he refused to give up the television remote, Deloris got so angry that she ran to the kitchen, grabbed a 5" steak knife, and stabbed him seven times, police say. Marion had stab wounds in his head, face, shoulder, back, and chest, puncturing a lung. Holley was arrested on charges of attempted murder. “They’ve been married for about 5 months,” a police spokesman said. “Obviously this was an extreme case of letting your emotions get away from you.” Also, he noted, alcohol “may have been” a factor in the case.
