SALISBURY — A man who authorities said was stabbed by his wife last month told a judge Wednesday they have reconciled.
Diann Wilder Sanders of Springdale Avenue, Kannapolis, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in early February for stabbing her husband, Glenn, in the shoulder. Kannapolis Police reported the two were arguing when the fight turned physical.
Diann Sanders’ attorney James Oxendine told the court she had been drinking.
Diann Sanders was given 45 days in the N.C. Department of Correction, which was suspended to 12 months supervised probation. She was ordered to pay court costs. District Court Judge Marshall Bickett also ordered she attend a substance abuse assessment and a batterer’s program, if one is available.
Bickett said Diann Sanders’ record shows she’s had at least 20 dismissals in various matters.
Glenn Sanders told the judge they had reconciled and were receiving counseling through their church. The couple have been together about 10 years and will celebrate their anniversary today.
Diann Sanders has three pending matters next month in both superior and district court, which include trespassing, no operator’s license and driving while impaired. She was convicted in 2007 of simple assault and in 2008 of drug possession. Glenn Sanders was convicted in 2007 of assault on a female and drug possession. He was also convicted of assault on an officer, resisting arrest and reckless driving.
