An Evansville woman is in jail Wednesday night after police say she stabbed her husband several times in front of her 11-year-old son.  

According to a police report, 35-year-old Stephanie Cruce told officers that she did it because her husband had trapped her in the basement.

Officers say Benjamin Cruce suffered three very deep stab wounds.

Stephanie is being held on a $5,000 bond and will be in court next week.
