But, in her defence, let's not forget that, some Japanese men can be r-soles.

An attempted murder stuff at the crack of the new year, though it occurred at the end of last year. Um, never change. :‑(

Anyhow, it's good for the husband to have escaped death.

"...attempting to kill..." If she did, Mrs. Masuda wouldn't have stabbed her husband on the shoulder! And she wouldn't have called 119! The key is why? She was drunk, but not too drunk, and something the husband did or said must have triggered the violent action or reaction, maybe?

I think it said he was sleeping so how could he provoke her... And if he did why the shoulder?
