  • Delaware State Police troopers have arrested a Georgetown man, identified as Albert Norman, 52, after he allegedly stabbed his wife during an argument.
    The incident began at 8:12 p.m. Sept. 22, when the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center received a call about a stabbing, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier. Troopers responding to the home in the 12000 block of Seashore Highway found the 37-year-old woman had been stabbed multiple times in the upper torso.
    Statements from the victim and her children indicated the couple had been talking about ending their relationship when Norman suddenly began stabbing her in the back. The children, a 15-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy, intervened, and were able to help the mother escape and hide in a neighbor's home.
    Norman allegedly threatened to stab the 57-year-old homeowner before fleeing in his car.
    The victim was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, where she underwent surgery for her wounds. She is listed in serious but stable condition, Fournier said.
    After leaving the house, Norman drove himself to Troop 4 and surrendered, Fournier said.
    Norman was charged with first-degree attempted murder, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, aggravated menacing, terroristic threatening and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
    He is being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution without bail.
