Ormond Beach, FL – Ormond Beach Police are investigating after a man said he was stabbed by his 95 pound wife in the abdomen after a domestic dispute.

The wife, 43-year-old Deana Trail was arrested after her husband, 61-year-old Johnnie Trail, claims she stabbed him around 12:30 PM on Monday at Virginia Terrace in Ormond Beach. The two were arguing after the wife came home to get her marriage certificate and asked the husband for a ride to get a new driver’s license. The two are in the midst of a divorce that is expected to be finalized this week.

The wife says that her husband got angry, said he was not going to help her, went inside, and locked the door, according to police reports. The argument got physical later after Deana Trail entered the back door of the house, and Johnnie Trail tried to shut the door on her. Deana Trail says that her husband put her in a headlock and that she had to bite him in order to get him off of her.

When police arrived at the scene, both the husband and wife had injuries. Deana Trail told police most of her injuries were from a fight with a different person the night before. Police noticed a cut on Johnnie Trail’s chest. When asked how her husband got the cut, the wife said she did not know and claimed that he probably stabbed himself, according to police reports.

Witnesses told police that Deana Trail did have a knife. Johnnie Trail’s mother, who went to the house to bring her son food, told police that Deana Trail threatened to kill her as well as Johnnie Trail.

Deana Trail was taken to Volusia County Branch Jail and is charged with aggravated battery. She was held without bond. Her husband was transported to the hospital and later released. This is an ongoing investigation, and more information will be released as it becomes available.
