Man attacks wife with meat cleaver

WHITLEY COUNTY (WAVE) – A southern Kentucky man will face attempted murder charges for attacking his wife with a meat cleaver Monday night.

His wife survived, despite what investigators said are serious wounds to Erica Privett's head and the rest of her body.

From behind bars, her husband James, said he regrets what he did.

He said both he and his wife have a serious drug problem and he got mad because she was exchanging sex for pills.

Privett is in jail on $1 million bond.
