Man Stabbed By Estranged Wife May Die

The life of a 40-year-old man hung in the balance today after he was stabbed with a 10-inch butcher knife during a hassle with his estranged wife.

The victim is Floyd Dye, address unknown. He is in Mercy hospital. Dye had receive 11 blood transfusions by mid morning today.

At Midnight

Dye showed up at his wife's second floor apartment at 121 Sixth st. SW about midnight. Mrs. Dye was asleep on the davenport when he arrived. She had come home about 7 and dozed off.

"I thought he was sober," Mrs. Dye told detectives, "so I let him in.

Once inside, Floyd started hitting me. He ripped my blouse and knocked me to the floor."

"Keep Away"

She said as she tried to get into the bedroom to get a different blouse but Floyd blocked her path. She then went into the kitchen, grabbed a butcher knife from a drawer, and waved it at her husband.
"I wanted to keep him away from me," she said.

Making a comment that "2 could play that game," Floyd grabbed a second knife and started toward his wife.

"I kept waving my knife as he approached. Suddenly Floyd grabbed his left arm. He started bleeding badly," Mrs. Dye said.

As Floyd slumped to the floor, Mrs. Dye told detectives she took what remained of her blouse and tried to stop the bleeding. She said she ran to a pay telephone next door to call an ambulance, but had forgotten her glasses and could not read the print in the phone book.

Gets Glasses

Floyd was still bleeding badly when she returned to the apartment for her glasses. She said she took a bath towel and tried again to stop the bleeding, but she couldn't.

Mrs. Dye then went to 523 First ave. SW, the residence of her father, Ralph Lane. He called an ambulance.

Dye was sitting on the edge of the bathtub when the ambulance arrived. Rushed to Mercy, he was given transfusions and blood plasma immediately.

Mrs. Dye told police that she and her husband have been separated for about 2 years. She said she filed suit for divorce about a year ago.
