A Westmont woman has been charged with stabbing her husband to death during an argument at the couple’s home Friday, officials said.

According to a press release from DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin, Lisa Davis, 42, of the 500 block of West 51st Street, has been charged with first degree murder in the death of her husband David, 49.

About 7:29 p.m. Friday, Westmont police responded to a 911 call at the couple’s home and found David Davis bleeding from a knife wound to the right side of his abdomen, the release said. Davis was transported to a local hospital, where he died at 11:36 p.m.
