AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- A two-month marriage could be in jeopardy after an alleged altercation over a remote control.

An Aiken Department of Public Safety report says 60-year-old Cynthia Siua stabbed her 60-year-old husband, Louis, on Tuesday night around 10 p.m.

The incident happened on Date Palm Circle in Aiken. When officers arrived, they found the husband covered in blood with stab wounds to his head and the middle of his back.

The report says Louis informed officers that he was stabbed by his wife who used a kitchen knife. The report says Louis told officers that he and his wife had been drinking beer and wine before the argument about the remote control.

The report says the suspect was captured at the scene, but not before a struggle.

"While these three officers were trying to place the suspect under arrest, she defecated on two of the officers, Lt. Turner and Cpl. Comer," the report reads.

The officers said both the suspect and victim appeared to be highly intoxicated.

Cynthia was transported to the Aiken County Detention Center, where she was booked for attempted murder.
