Woman to stand trial in husband's stabbing

A Lawrenceville woman is set to stand trial for murder in Gwinnett County Monday in the July 2009 death of her husband.

Ashley Schutt initially told police she and her husband were victims of a home invasion. She said her husband, Gregory Schutt, 30, was killed and she was sexually assaulted.

Police say it was Schutt who stabbed her husband more than 30 times, slit his wrists and throat and bashed him with a hammer, possibly while he was asleep. Relatives tried to get charges reduced, claiming she snapped after enduring years of abuse from her husband.
