The jury took two hours to deliver a not guilty verdict for Jan Painter, 34, who stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife after he took money from her purse. During a three-day trial, the jury heard how Painter was suffering from severe PMS when she stabbed her husband, James, 44. She testified that he had slapped her and then impaled himself.
