A feud between a husband and wife Thursday night in Kingwood could lead to homicide charges being filed against the woman. The woman, whose name has not been released by authorities, reportedly stabbed her husband in a femoral artery before being pushed from their vehicle. The pair were traveling eastbound on Kingwood Drive around 7 p.m. in a rental car from Louisiana when they, for unknown reasons, began to argue. As the argument grew more heated, the woman used a paring knife to stab her husband. As they struggled, the man opened the passenger-side door and pushed his wife from the car as he was turning right on W. Lake Houston Drive. Sources on the scene say that the man managed to pull into a parking lot at Burger King where he brought the vehicle to a stop. The man was initially taken by ground ambulance to Kingwood Medical Center but later was taken by air ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston.
