DILLONVALE , Ohio, July 29 (UPI) -- An Ohio woman claimed that a dream about "filleting a fish" led to her slit her husband's throat while he slept at their Dillonvale home.

Judy Jones was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault after she allegedly nearly killed her husband by cutting his throat from ear-to-ear.

It's believed that the husband would have died if Jones' 16-year-old daughter had not called 911 immediately and summoned emergency help.

"She made threats that she was going to kill him," Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla told WTOV. "And she almost did early Saturday morning."

The couple's daughter reportedly told investigators that her mother had been planning the covert attack for about a year.

The 49-year-old husband is still in the hospital recovering.

"He's got stitches from almost (ear to ear) so we just have to wait for it to go through the court system," Abdalla said.

According to investigators, Jones eventually admitted trying to kill her husband.
