U.S. man allegedly told toddler to 'stab "Mommy'

A Connecticut man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his wife several times, then giving the knife to his two-year-old son and telling him to "stab Mommy," police said.

Fermin Rodriguez, 21, attacked his 17-year-old wife Sunday night, after accusing her of cheating on him, police said.

After slashing and stabbing the woman multiple times, Rodriguez then handed the knife to his son telling him, "now you stab Mommy," police said Monday.

Police would not say whether the boy complied with his father's directive, the Connecticut Post reported in its Tuesday editions.

Rodriguez was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree unlawful restraint and threatening.

The wife, Keyschla Rodriguez, was taken to a hospital for treatment of stab wounds to her chest, face, arms and legs, reports AP.

Fermin Rodriguez was being held on $350,000 (EUR267,500) bond.
