While mostÂ menÂ spend Mother’s Day pampering the women in their lives, the scene at one Florida home was somethingÂ dramaticallyÂ different.
When Florida authorities arrived to the scene of a domestic disturbance call,Â they sawÂ 46-year-old Michael Finn chasing his spouse across the yard with a knife, as she attempted to make her way to the safety of a neighbor’s home.
The deputy was able to handcuff the enraged husband and subdue him, but not before FinnÂ was able to stab his wife Kristin one one more time,Â adding yet another bloody wound to his wifeÂ as she stumbled towards theÂ neighbor’s house.
It wasn’t until police got everything under control, that authorities made the chilling revelation: The couple’s 15-year-old daughter was on the porch the entire time, watching as her mother was mercilessly hacked to deathÂ with a knife, on the eve of Mother’s Day.
â€œThe violent death this mother suffered is unthinkable,â€ said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judds stated in a press release.Â â€œBut the fact that the murder occurred in front of a child during Motherâ€™s Day weekend is horrific. Michael Finn is in jail where he belongs, and we will work to ensure he never leaves and never gets another chance to victimize innocent people.â€
Following his arrest, Finn has been charged with first-degree murder, where he remains without bond. Court records reveal that this wasn’t his first brush with the law, as his arrest record reveals multiple arrests for battery and domestic violence.
How absolutely horrific! How heartbreaking for the daughter, to not only lose her mom,Â but to witness the entire grisly murder at the hands of her father.
