MINOT, N.D. (AP) -- A Minot woman accused of stabbing her husband has been found guilty of attempted murder.

Heather Leavitt, 36, threw her hands to her face and began to cry when the guilty verdict was read Thursday night.

Leavitt was found guilty of stabbing her husband eight times during the early morning hours of Feb. 1. Authorities say a bloodied Timothy Leavitt ran to the home of a neighbor, who called police.

A doctor testified that Leavitt suffered punctures to both lungs.

Prosecutor Kelly Dillon told jurors that Timothy Leavitt was ''so bloody'' that a police officer who responded ''couldn't see the injuries.''

Heather Leavitt faces up to 20 years in prison. A sentencing date has not been set.
