WARREN, Ohio -

A Trumbull County jury heard from a woman who claimed her husband tried to kill her, and made it appear to be a suicide.

Rebecca Dellick, 43, told the jury her husband, Christopher Dellick, attacked her from behind at their home on October 17, 2013. She said he cut her on the thigh near her femoral artery, and made her put her own fingerprints on the knife, so her murder would look like a suicide.

Dellick said that she was fearful of her 36-year-old husband and had initiated a divorce, but had gone to the home to pick up some clothes and toiletries for herself and their daughter.

Defense Attorney David Ruzzo questioned why Rebecca would return home, to pick up a few items that could be bought at WalMart, if she was so fearful of Chris Dellick. Ruzzo also questioned why Rebecca didn't run once she was safely out of the house in their residential neighborhood.

Dellick explained she was afraid.

On Wednesday, Christopher Dellick, who is charged with kidnapping, aggravated burglary and felonious assault could take the stand in his own defense.
