Mom Says Horror Movie Led Toddler To Stab Father

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (CBS13) — A mother accused of domestic violence and child endangerment denied accusations that she told her daughter to stab her husband and claimed she was the victim of domestic violence.

Krista Wagner, 31, was arrested last week after her husband suffered stab wounds and told police he was assaulted at their Rancho Cordova home during an argument.

In an interview from the Sacramento County Jail, the mother of three said she never attacked him and didn’t tell her 4-year-old daughter to stab him with a butter knife.

“He told the cops that I slapped him three to four times in the face,” Wagner said, adding that he struck her during the altercation.

The toddler did stab her husband, but Wagner said she believes her daughter was just trying to protect her and got the idea from “Child’s Play,” a horror movie released in 1988 about a killer doll come to life.

“I think it’s from watching Chucky,” Wagner said. “He lets her watch these kinds of movies and I [told] him before she can’t watch that kind of stuff because she acts really evil.”

All three of Wagner’s children, including her 19-day-old baby boy, are in custody of Child Protective Services.

Wagner is being held on $50,000 bond.

    Well Robert I guess you never learned puntuation in school.
    As far as why she only hooks up with losers is that is a low self esteem loser herself.

All you people that are on here spilling the beans about there life are not making either one of them look like good parents. I hope you dont speak like you type cause your sounding white trash also. Poor kids have no hope. It takes a village but a village does no good when its full of idiots!

  • Can't stop laughing

    I never thought I would receive the best entertainment ever by a bunch of illiterate Rednecks.LOL..For example: It’s not “When they wasn’t living together,it’s When they “weren’t living together.You don’t say “they was not living together”,you say “they were not”living together.It’s pretty easy ,even for a bunch of trailer trash.Now let’s all pray the children ,unlike the uneducated twits that were so called “raising”them,will be adopted out to someone who uses both sides of their brain.In the mean time why don’t you all get together and go visit Yosemite,great views from Half Dome.Especially when you get real close to the shear side & look down.If it’s raining, don’t bother using the cables hiking up it,It’s more fun that way! Oh and you can get great photos of Vernal Falls If you wade into the river a few yards from the falls at the top.
