READING, OH (FOX19) -

A woman is accused of stabbing her husband in the back and then asking police to shoot her so she can "die suicide by cop."

Lauren Michael Ward, 32, faces a judge Thursday on charges of felonious assault, domestic violence and resisting arrest.

She was held overnight without bond at the Hamilton County jail following her arrest Wednesday at the couple's 3rd Street apartment.

As officers arrived, they found her screaming on the front porch that her husband needed help. They found the man inside on the living room floor with a stab wound to his lower left back, court records show.

He was bleeding heavily, and the carpet around him was covered in blood.

Ward said she shoved her husband, and he accidentally fell on the knife.

He told police a different version of events: he said he accidentally sat on on chair holding the knife.

Police didn't buy either story and took Ward to the police department for questioning.

That's where they say she alleged her husband beat her and her children. She also said she had a head wound, so paramedics were called to treat her.

She accused police of not caring about her, being racist and then told one of the officers she hoped his "mother and kids were beaten and not helped."

Finally, she asked the officer to shoot her "cuz she wanted to die suicide by cop," records state.

The officer helped her into an ambulance. She was treated, released and taken to jail.
