Developing: Georgia Mother Stabs Husband to Protect Daughter He’s Allegedly Accused of Molesting

A Georgia mother was arrested after police say she stabbed her husband last month, after accusations of him molesting his minor daughter.

According to The Georgia Gazette, Nicole Rodriguez, of Rossville, contacted Walker County police on April 25 to report that her husband sexually abused their daughter for numerous years, beginning when the child was four years old.

Arrest documents indicate that Rodriguez told police she confronted her husband in a bedroom, and stabbed him, although he was “walking around” afterward and she didn’t know how significant the injuries were.

She allegedly said that she “wanted him to be dead, but when it came down to it, she just could not do it.”

Following the attack, Rodriquez contacted police and arranged to meet with officers from the Walker County Sheriff’s Department at a local Rusty’s Meat Market.

Officers said she told them that her husband had a previous case with the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS) on allegations of child molestation, and he gained custody of their children after the case closed.

She confronted her husband about the accusations on April 23, leading to an argument, according to what she told police. The husband returned the following day when the alleged knife attack took place.

“She advised she grabbed a kitchen knife and went into the bedroom thinking she was going to play God and wanted to stab him,” police said. “She advised she does not know if she got him good because she did not see any gushing blood or anything like that.”

Police arrived at the residence and found the husband with minor lacerations on his hand and a puncture wound on his arm. He refused medical treatment.

Rodriguez was subsequently arrested and charged with “aggravated assault – family violence.”
