A neighbor found the husband, left in pain, and took him to a nearby hospital, where he is in stable condition.
A police investigation revealed that the couple were on unhealthy terms.
Not only had the husband been violent to the woman, she had harbored a grudge because he gave her no money, but spent lavishly on his own enjoyment, such as like playing golf.
