A woman accused of murdering her husband claims she stabbed him accidentally after tripping on a rug.
Rachel Fidanian, 38, has been charged with murder, after telling sheriff’s deputies how she was cutting pizza with the knife when her dog ran into the house covered in poop.
Fidanian, of Lakeland, Fla., says she ran after the animal in an attempt to pick it up and tripped on a rug, plunging the knife into her husband Bryan’s chest.

She also claimed to have had a ‘wonderful’ relationship with her partner, but neighbors reported hearing rows, and deputies had been called out to the address on seven previous occasions.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WFTS: ‘The suspect made a lot of excuses, but none of them made sense.
‘Our detectives did a thorough investigation.
‘In the end, they determined this was an intentional act of domestic violence.’
Sheriff Judd and his deputies charged Fidanian with second-degree murder after a three month investigation.
