A Smyrna woman accused of stabbing her husband in front of their daughter pleaded guilty and was sentenced in Kent County on Tuesday morning.

According to a Delaware Department of Justice spokesman, 36-year-old Tangela Raymond of Smyrna, pleaded guilty to third degree assault. She was then sentenced to one year in prison, suspended for one year at a substance abuse program called CREST.
