You know, it seems to me that these two could use a bit of counseling and perhaps a change of diet:
- A Bucks County woman who stabbed and critically injured her husband after he refused to sit down to dinner with her pleaded guilty yesterday to felony assault charges.
Diane Gallagher, 38, wife of Lower Southampton Township Supervisor Joseph Gallagher, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and related charges in Bucks County Court. A sentencing date has not been set.
Joseph Gallagher sustained a life-threatening chest wound from a steak knife in the Dec. 28 attack in their home. The couple told police they had been quarreling, and that Diane Gallagher had accidentally wounded her husband after he refused to join her in a prime rib and Boston cream pie dinner she had prepared.
Through her attorney, Diane Gallagher admitted that she was criminally negligent in the stabbing, but that she had not intended to wound him.
