Deputies: Husband stabs wife while at church

| June 24, 2012

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) –  Church members held a man until deputies arrived after they said he stabbed his wife while she was attending a Bible study Thursday.

Greenville County deputies said they were called to Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses at 1400 Old Spartanburg Rd. about 2:15 p.m. where they found church members holding 46-year-old Leonard Edwards Jr. in the sanctuary and his wife lying on the floor with a stab wound to the back.

Church members told deputies that Edwards arrived at the church while his wife was attending a Bible study and asked for her to come out of the church, which she did.

His wife immediately ran back inside with Edwards chasing after her carrying a knife, deputies said. They said he knocked her down and stabbed her in the back before the members could stop and detain him.
