MILLVILLE, NJ — A woman accused of using a nail clipper to stab her husband has been charged with murder.

Kathleen Ayala also faces weapons charges stemming from the attack that occurred early Sunday at a mobile home complex in Millville, New Jersey.

Ayala and Axel Torres were arguing in their trailer when the dispute turned physical.

Torres left the trailer but his wife chased after him, repeatedly stabbing him, authorities said. Torres lost consciousness and was taken to a hospital but died there Monday.

According to court documents, the woman told police she only wanted to scare her husband, not harm him.

It's not known if she's retained an attorney.
