It was just before 7:30 p.m. when Federal Way police got a call about a stabbing in the 3800 block of Southwest 339 Street. Police say a woman called 911 to say she accidentally stabbed her husband, according to Cathy Schrock with the Federal Way Police Department.
When officers arrived on scene they found a 51-year-old man with a stab wound to his chest. The man died at the scene.
Police are still investigating, but they believe the man's wife stabbed him during a "domestic violence situation."
Schrock said she doesn't know if the couple has a history of domestic violence.
The 50-year-old woman is in police custody and being interviewed by detectives.
